I just created a text box in Captivate 2019. A simple text box and typed some text, it scrolled till the end.

I want it to word-wrap the text box to fit into my pane. However, there seems to be no feature for this!!

 

I seems like I can't word-wrap text in a simple text box !! The properties of this text box have every other feature under the sun from x co-ordinate to y co-ordinate to locking positions and even adding a shadow !! Yet either I don't see this basic feature (word-wrap) there. Is it hiding somewhere I can't see?

Thanks. That doesn't help though. 

It still doesn't wrap.

Thanks for the help. I was barking up the wrong tree. What I needed was a text-caption and not the text box. If you're moving from MS Word or Excel, you would grab the first thing that looks similar. I should have noticed that text-box has a submit buton which clearly wasn't the functionality I was looking for.

Once again guys, thanks for the help.
