Placing Text Using Word Wrap
by Lynne Taylor - 02 September 2002

The text enhancements to v8, include the Word Wrap method. This enables the placement of text to a specified paragraph width by defining two diagonally opposite points.
In the Place Text tool settings window, set the Method to Word Wrap

Place a data point to define the first corner point of the text box

Define the opposite corner of the text box with another data point.

In the Text Editor window, type in the desired text.

When you have finished entering text, accept placement with a data point.

If you got the original paragraph width wrong, don't worry. You can adjust it by selecting the text with the Element Selection tool......

Then grabbing and repositioning the modify grips!
