Is there a way to make a line of text automaticaly go to 2 lines if to long.
I am using the subject property and would like if the string is too long to
add a 2nd line of text (ie...soft return). I tried size the text box to
fill the area that can have text in it biut that did not work.

Kinda like th FIT command in Autocad.

Any help/suggested would be great!

I figured out ho to do the 2 lines.but can you have auto text size so if it
is 1 line it is big and if 2 it gets smaller....

My text boxes are just slightly shorter that the appropriate block in the
titleblock. Whenever I exceed a certain number of characters, it
automatically wraps. I have room for 3 lines in the title. Are your text
blocks tall enough, vertically for additional lines?

I use a fixed size so the text is the same on all lines independent of
whether there is one line, two, or three.
