word wrap on room labels

Recommended Posts

I had no luck on the first page of google results.  Is it possible to force a word wrap on a room label without simply manually placing text?

 

Bonus question: how can I place a standalone backsplash behind an oven, below a vent hood?  I see the option for "custom backsplash" but it is not selectable in the menu.  I can just dropper match the adjacent, but that applies to the entire wall.  I have not investigated further, just out of curiosity.

That's the tool. It should work in every view except plan.

You can also use a material Region and in a pinch use a base cabinet set to 3/4" depth and slide the Range against it.

 

Sorry not sure about the Room label Text Wrap.....

If you simply put a Text Box in a Room with the %room.name% macro in it (or whatever other text you want) then you can word wrap simply by changing the width of the text box.  The text can also be multi-line and formatted as you like.

 

You will probably want to "suppress" the actual Room Label.

 

Another nice feature of using a Text Box is that you can put it outside the Room and connect with an Arrow.  The macro will display the data.

Room labels will wrap like any other text box.  All you have to do is resize the box.

How ridiculously simple, and foolish that I never even tried that, thanks Alaskan_Son.

 

Also, thank you everybody else for the suggestions.
