Text Boxes - Suppress Hyphens; Add Padding

Post by brody-xr3 » Tue Feb 23, 2021 5:27 am


Is there any way to suppress hyphenation in Text Boxes?

I know how to add first-line indents to Text Boxes. Is there any way to add total padding? So that there is a bit of space between the text and the border for every line?

Hi, brody-xr3

You can disable hyphenation by right clicking within the text editing area as you have some text selected:
As for changing the padding, you can adjust both the left and right indent, as well as increase line spacing to achieve this effect. Unfortunately it is not possible to explicitly specify "top" or "bottom" padding however.
This is most easily done through the "paragraph options" window, which can be opened with Ctrl+H when you have the desired text selected.
