    I would like to be able to used the splined text tool with a "return" so that your map annotation ends up on two lines instead of one. Currently if you add splined text (for exampe, along a curved road: Main Street), if you open the text box and hit enter with your cursor between Main and Street so that Street appears on a second line and close the text box, all it does is add a few spaces, not place Street on a second line. This used to work in earlier versions of ArcMap, but not now. There is a work around, but it is not terribly satisfactory (make two separate splined text pieces).
