      Text Boxes

      Post

      I am a FM Pro10 on an XP platform user.

      Is there a better way to set up a text box so when a user types in this box the words don't cut from one sentence to the other. Same goes for printing.

          Jeff_D,

           Pardon my igonorance...

           

          What does this mean?  Spacing? What is word cutting?

            Well it so simple it's hard to explain and it's bothered me for some time now, so I'll try to explain better.

             I have a text box that is 319px wide by 101px wide, formatted at 10 font arial,

            when a sentence carries over to the next line, in most cases the whole word at the end;

            e.g.

            "I can write information into this text box and if the sentence or para

            graph is longer than the 101px wide it doesn't wrap a complete word.

            ".

             

            This is my example, you see that the word "paragraph" doesn't wrap to the next line.

                 Go to File > File Options… > Text and make sure that 'Use Roman language line-breaking' is turned on.
