    Hi All,

    I did a quick search and didnt find anything on this yet.

    I find it very fraustrating:

    • for text boxes that      when you want if you want your text to be on multiple lines you have to      manually add line breaks.
    • For Labels it is      fraustrating when your label exceeds the bounds of your polygon.

     

    It would really great to have several options:

    Textboxes:

    • The ability to have      something similar to Textboxes in Visual Basic Editor where you have      options to set it to a multi-line textbox.
    • The ability to change      the size of the textbox without changing the size of the text
    • And some basic formatting      options in the Textbox dialog box.

     

    Labels:

    • The ability to set a length      limiter on labels (for example, if text length = 20, go to the nearest “space”      then create a line break
    • The ability to have a      setting that limits the label to the polygon

     

    I think these changes would be extremely useful.

     

    Cheers
