[Solved] Combo box wrap text

Postby deki » Sat Nov 30, 2019 12:29 pm

Is it possible for a combo or list box to automatically transfer text lines that are too long into another line?

No, this is not possible but you can add an additional multi-line text box linked to the same field.

Open the form for editing, get some free space near the combo box, note the combo's linked field, draw a text box, set text type to "Multi-line" and the data field on the data tab to the same column name as the combo box. Now the same field content is displaced in two form controls.
