Space name width

Is there a way to make the space tag family with an adjustable width. I have some space names that could work better as a 2 line and others that work best a 3 line and it all depends on the width and length of the space name. Some of these are really long.

Try this: select the Space Tag and then pick Edit Family.  Once in the Family Editor, select the label and you will see it inside of a rectangle that has two filled dots on each side.  Pull the dots out, or in, to adjust the width that word-wrapping will kick in.  May take a little experimenting to get what you want.  Otherwise, you may need to make a second Space tag for those stubborn names.

I have done that but it changes all of them. I was hoping for a way to change them individually without making all of them separate families

I created two Types. I copied the label over itself, so there were two overlapping. I adjusted the margins of one of them and then created a couple of Type Parameters to control their visibility. I called one 'Thin Tag' and the other 'Wide Tag'.
