Text Wrapping in Microsoft Project

Text Wrapping in Microsoft Project

Text Wrapping in Microsoft Project

When entering information in task rows, sometimes the information will not wrap.  This is especially a problem with a long list of predecessors.  When printing this does not always allow the viewer to see the task bars in Gantt view.  Is the text wrapping function only available in certain versions?  We can make this work in Project 2003, but not 2000.

RE: Text Wrapping in Microsoft Project

Text wrapping is only available for the Task Name (Name) field and the task titles.  No other field will text wrap.  MS Project is not like Excel in many areas.

MSP will wrap the predecessor column, if the row height is extended taller than a single line, but will truncate the display if the height is insufficient to display everything.
