Is there a fix or setting to prevent multiline text fields in Survey123 from displaying words broken apart?

I have a number of surveys where text is entered into a text field set with the "multiline" appearance using the Survey123 Connect desktop application. 

When the users enter the text in the mobile application, when the text strings hits the end of the display box, it continues the display on the next line (not a hard return).

words display on next line.

Is there a setting or pending update to resolve this, so that words remain together?

Hi Nicholas,

Unfortunately, there isn't a way to alter the word wrapping - this is something that can be difficult to work across different devices, fonts and sizes.

Thank you James. The good news is that everything carries over onto the Feature Report the right way. We look forward to when(if) this changes.

We just noticed this as well. Was this always the case or something new with recent update? Please keep it on the backlog so we can all holdout hope for a fix sometime down the road.
