Book Info Quirk

Anonymous

Try this:

Open any cheap text editor like Notepad and type three short phrases on three different lines (hitting ENTER at the end of each phrase). Now copy all of this and go into PlotMaker. Select Book->Book Info, then past what you have copied into any category. Insert a text instance and use the autotext code for the category you pasted your phrases into.

What you should see are your three phrases stacked on each other just like in Notepad. PlotMaker keeps and uses the return characters from the copied text.

At first, I was going to report this as a bug, but I actually like it -- it allows me to get a couple extra lines of information out of a single category.

Maybe a Windows thing?

Doesn't seem to work on a Mac, using Text Edit (either Plain text or Rich Text)

I found another use for it. I always wanted to use my layout names to automatically fill in the sheet title, but the text won't wrap. Now I can just insert a return character to split the title. It's still readable in the tree view, and it displays correctly as part of the master layout.

Type any text in PlotMaker with line breaks, copy and paste - the same happens.
