Link Text to Record: multiple lines of text

Recommended Posts

(Formerly posted at "Tech Note and How To Suggestions")

Is it possible to have multiple lines of text with one Record Format/Link Text to Record entry or will it require multiple entries? For example: the sheet title requires three lines of text in the Title Block. I tried creating a Text Block in the symbol but the entered text (via the OIP/Data tab) ignored text wrap and continued in one unbroken line. Obviously, carriage return doesn't work in this situation.

I have never been able to what you want. On the other hand for the sheet title i was happy to put up with 3 separate lines of record format to fill in 3 lines of titl block.

I notice that the issue manager manages to do what you ask, hoave text wrapping in the recorc fomat, so it must be possible, but I suspect that some trick script writing was involved...

You may be ableto cut and paste a carriage return into the OIP.

i have found also that each line of info has to have its own line of record format, just as archoncad notes in his first paragraph.
