Wrap Text in Text Box

• May 24, 2019 - 23:17

Hello...I have searched the manual and forum but unable to find a similar question (or response).

After my short score, I have inserted a text box so that I can add some text that are 'program notes'. Text to be read that describes the piece (not lyrics or directions for performing). When I add in a number of lines of words, they all run off the right hand edge of the page, sort of like a run-on sentence. So you can't read everything because it's way out off the margin.

What am I doing wrong and how can I fix it??



There is no word wrap in a text frame. (Though often requested.)
Think of it as using an old mechanical typewriter. That is, when you get to the end of a line, hit the 'carriage return' - i.e., the Enter/Return key.
If your run-on sentence is already entered (and thus flows out of the text frame), place the cursor (in edit mode) at the spot you wish to end the text line and press the Enter/Return key to start a new line. Repeat as necessary until all the entered text appears in the frame.

It really works, But the result is not such nice and therefor I would prefer, if some future version had wrapping and also fitting to block.

As second reason is, that when you write some longer text (preface or other) and if you edit the text that is already written and you add or remove some texts, then you must remake all ends of line.
