Option to Fit variable content by front size AND Multiline?

Post by HaydnWVN » Thu May 30, 2019 1:11 pm

Hi

I'm trying to figure out if there is a way to scale a variable input to fit multi-line AND by font size.

With a Text box I can obviously fit by font size, able to set minimum & maximum:

With a general Text setting (non-box) I can set the source Advanced properties to have an Output which is Multiline (with number & length):

Both of these do not seem to work together - the multiline seems to ignore scaling to fit when it is enabled:

The Scale to fit seems to work if multiline is disabled:

I wish to use both if possible?

I have a Variable input coming (using Automation) which may have as few as 10 characters, yet as many as 80. I have lots of label space I can use to display it. I want it word wrapped, yet also as large as possible to fill the space! :D

I'm using Powerforms v17.3.1

We recommend opening a support case https://www.nicelabel.com/support/technical-support so the support team can get more information and try to come up with a workaround

Hi Kyle

Many thanks for the response, have logged it with them.

Just to finish this off - it's not possible to combine both together. Multi-line Or Scaling. Not both.
