Multiline boundary not wrapping text?

170 Views, 4 Replies

I am trying to create an attribute with multi-text and I am unable to get the text to wrap. I have the boundary width option checked and specified, but the text doesnt seem to care and keeps right on going....

 

Any answers are appreciated.

Silly question
(maybe) but are there spaces in the value you are using for the attribute, of is it a very long string of characters?

 

just to clarify, your question is not silly, mine is....

No spaces and the boundary is set to 3"

And that's why.  Multiline works like wordwrap -- if there's no space, there's no place to break.
