Room Name PIO

Recommended Posts

From within the Room Name PIO, is there a way to make the Room Name field be two lines of text instead of one? Some of my room names are kind of long and would fit better in the space if they were two lines (stacked) instead of just one.

If you type the room name in MS Word or some other word processing program with a return making two lines, then copy and paste it into the name box in the OIP, it will appear as two lines. I don't know if there is any easy way to do it from within VW. But you can do this once, and then keep copying the room name in VW, and just typing over the two separate lines if you don't delete the invisible return in the middle.

How strange. Thanks for the help Kristen. Nemetchek, is there a keyboard shortcut to add an "invisible" return in the room name field?

Dan,

I tried editing the PIO and trying other ways to force the chracter return. I haven't been able to crack the code yet.

I am looking into this to see if there's a way to do it. I'll post it here if there is.

There's not a way to do this due the control points used for the text object.

I have added this to the wish list.

In addition to Kristen's suggestion, I discovered that I can create the two line text in VW, then copy it from there and paste it into the PIO name field. No need to go into another app.
