I am using RoboHelp 2017 with a 4K screen and find that topic content is not wrapping when I edit a topic. Please can someone explain how to get this feature back. I have recently installed the latest updates for this version, and I am not sure if this has caused the problem, or whether it is because of the 4k screen. I get the same problem on my second screen, which is not 4K. Thanks very much for any advice.

Hi. This happens with all styles, and with default.css and another CSS file.
Try one of the sample projects. Then we will know if it is a project or
I have tried a sample project, as you suggest, and can confirm that the problem is exactly the same. Thanks
Thanks. Are there any reported problems that you know of using RoboHelp with a 4K display?
Just to be sure, can you confirm that there isn't a setting somewhere which turns wrapping on or off? I was just wondering if I have missed this, perhaps.
Do you have your zoom % in Robohelp set to something other than 100%? I seem to remember that could cause some funny behaviour in the past.
Zoom over 100% does not stop text wrapping, rather it causes the end of each line to go off screen with a scroll bar at the bottom. It would make the original post in this thread look like this.
Here MDennetti is saying the text is not wrapping, as opposed to wrapping in the wrong place. To me that means a single line of text.

Hi. Peter has described the problem correctly. As the 4K screen is so big, when you set the zoom to 100% the contents of a topic are too small. When I zoom in to the topic, I would like the text to wrap but it doesn't.
That's right, yes. That's good to know, thanks
Hold down the [left?] Control key then scroll with your middle mouse wheel to zoom in and out.
The document will come into and out of view depending on that zoom setting. The Design Editor remains static but the "stuff you're editing" will grow big or small - bringing the right hand side and everything into view to see the whole document.
Yes, this is what the OP did but due to a quirk in RH the only way to see all the content is to use the horizontal scroll bar, as the "page" no longer fits in the visible area.
I am having the same issue. I would like the to set the zoom higher so the text is not so small, but it's very frustrating that the text does not wrap. What is the solution?
My workaround for this annoying problem is to make a clone of the current stylesheet with all font sizes doubled. Then I set zoom to 100% and switch to the clone to compose text and switch back when done. You can search all topics for the clone stylesheet name to make sure no topic is using the clone.
Thanks, but this doesn't seem like a good long term solution. Is this a Robohelp bug? And if yes, what is the fix?
Fix is to go to RH2020. Nothing is going to be fixed in RH2017 now.
