use case text multiple lines add breaks

use case text multiple lines add breaks

(OP)
I am looking for a way to make lines shorter and to add breaks into lines. In the past I had a special char that automatically inserted a new line. I can't find it anymore. Maybe someone knows how to insert a newline into the text?

RE: use case text multiple lines add breaks

Hi Arjen,

errrrmmm - you sure you are in the right forum?
This one is about Visio.
So if you are talking about shape text - what's the problem? hit return and you have a new line.

defenitely the right forum.....
When u make a use case diagram, u can drag and drop a 'use case'. U can change the text when you doubleclick the use case. Here you can type text for the use case. But only in one line. It will automatically create multiple lines if it gets too long. But I want to create new lines myself so that I can create use cases that are less width more height for example.

RE: use case text multiple lines add breaks

Sorry, my bad, skipped th "use case" part.
blush

anyway: when I drag & drop a use case shape, Text is initially protected.
I removed Text protection with right click-->Format-->Protection, unchecked "Text" et voilà: could simply type away including line breaks...
