InDesign Multi-line File Name Text Variable

Hi everyone,

This has been asked as a question before, but I've not found an answer so I'm asking it a little more specifically to what I'm looking for. I have a text variable for the file name and I'm wanting to learn to make it automatically scroll into multiple lines. Currently if your text box is not wide enough, all of the characters condense into each other making it illegible.

I've found a forum regarding creating nested styles that didn't seem to work. Any specific help and instructions would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Text variables are limited to one line. It's been a known issue/limitation as long as the Text Variable feature has existed.
