Word wrap in marriage data

Post by Andrew Spencer » Tue Feb 14, 2006 6:08 pm

Recently my charts have started to display marriage data in 2 lines. I'm not aware of having changed any settings.

If I have a marriage, say, 1850 in London, the year and place will be in separate lines. If the marriage took place in Milton Keynes it will show "1850 Milton" in one line and "Keynes" in the second. In all cases it's just the final word that gets wrapped, regardless of the length of the name.

Any ideas, please?

The settings which would affect this are:

all in "Options | Preferences | Import graphics"...

Fonts - choosing non-TrueType fonts affects how Windows calculates text width.

Word wrapping - if "Word wrap" is On then text width is limited to the value in "Text width".

Thanks for the reply, Nick. I've finally found what did it and I think I may have unearthed a bug. I set the marriage data to appear in italics and that seems to have caused the problem. I've now changed it back and everything's fine again.
