How to configure Splunk to break events after an empty line or before certain strings?

We have the logs like below pattern. We want to break the events after an empty newline or starting before ERROR: or starting before TypeError:

Can you please tell us how to adjust this props.conf entry, seems this is not breaking based on empty newline,

[nodejs_stdout]
BREAK_ONLY_BEFORE = (^\n)|(^\r)|(^\n\r)|(^\r\n)|(^ERROR:)|(^TypeError:)
category = Custom
pulldown_type = true
TRUNCATE = 0

I prefer LINE_BREAKER to BREAK_ONLY_BEFORE. And I'd be careful with TRUNCATE = 0 as well. The following should break after a new line followed by another new line, "ERROR" or "TypeError".

[nodejs_stdout]
LINE_BREAKER = ([\r\n])[\r\n]|ERROR|TypeError
SHOULD_LINEMERGE = false
category = Custom
pulldown_type = true
TRUNCATE = 100000

Try this

[ nodejs_stdout ]
SHOULD_LINEMERGE=true
BREAK_ONLY_BEFORE=([\n\r]|Type|ERROR)
