Dynamic text formatting for multiple lines

Hi,

I had some dynamic text that I needed to format into multiple lines to fit to a defined space without reducing font size. I thought that pressing return in the text editor may have done the job, but that didn't work. I couldn't find a reference to text formatting that may allow this. Is it possible to multi-line dynamic text such as a statement for example.

Mapping Center Answer:

There is no text tag to create multiple lines in dynamic text, but you can try inserting rectangle or polygon text instead and then copying the tags from the dynamic text into these text blocks.
