Merged cells stop wrapping


T

TJ Daniel

I've created a form in excel with merged cells. I've got it set-up to wrap
text & shrink to fit. It works well - for a few lines - then for some reason
it just stops wrapping the text.

I've tried with row & column cells merged - and with only row cells merged.

It almost appears that there is a maximum capacity for wrapping?

Try adding alt-enters every 80-100 characters.

You may have to manually adjust the rowheight, too.

I'm trying to create a form for others to use - so the alt-enter would be
more cumbersome if I can avoid it.

Even if I manuall adjust the row height - it still only wraps for the first
part of the text.

Any other suggestions?
