    Wrapping column text (Project 2000)

    I have followed the directions to make rows deeper in order to wrap text. However, if I change the font from the default Arial 8 point to Arial 12 point, the text no longer wraps. Also, if I change it back to Arial 8 point, it still will not wrap!!!!!! Is this a "feature" (ha-ha)??

    Did it wrap initially?

    Yes... initially when the text was the default Arial 8 pt. it wrapped. When I changed it to Arial 12 point it did not wrap. Even when I changed it back to Arial 8 point it did not wrap.

    Somehow, changing the font for all of the text fields eliminated the wrapping capability and I do not know how (or if) I can get it back.

    I have not been able to reproduce your problem. I'm wondering if there is something else going on.
    Have you tried reproducing the problem in a new file?

    Yes, I have reproduced the problem... I am sending, under 2 replys, project files initially done in Arial 8, then changed to Arial 12... watch how the wrapping disappears!

    I wonder if it is a "setting" that is different from your setup?

    Re: Wrapping column text (Project 2000)

    Sorry - I can't see the problem, the information is wrapping beautifully when I open it in Project. I am not aware of a setting other than the column width/row height that can control wrapping. Does anyone else out there have a suggestion?

    Cheers

    Re: Wrapping column text (Project 2000)

    Thanks Catharine for your help... wonder why this is happening on my system?? Is there a patch that I do not have for Project 2000 (9.0.2000.0224)?

    Does anyone else have a solution???

    hyperlink added
    Problem Fixed:

    Apparently there is a SR-1 for Project 2000... download it at <A target="_blank" HREF=http://office.microsoft.com/downloads/2000/p9sr1.aspx
    >http://office.microsoft.com/downloads/2000/p9sr1.aspx
    </A>
    This seemed to "fix" the wrapping problem, no matter what size font I used!! Nice to know I wasn't going crazy... just another MS "feature" <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>
