Details

There is no specific feature in ZebraDesigner that will automatically wrap text when entering a lengthy or variable text entry. If the workaround is not sufficient we suggest you look at Nice Label Software. www.nicelabel.com.

Workaround

To create a Word Wrap box in ZebraDesigner you need to make use of the ZPL command features by using Field Block(^FB) or Text Block(^TB) commands. You can embed these commands in a Command Font that can be created and used as shown in the below screenshots: 

Note:  The x-y positions would be values you enter regarding where you want to position this example text box on the label.

In this example we will use the ZPL Field Block Command ^FB Read More>>

^FOx,y^A0N,40,40^FB500,10,0,L,0^FD (See the ^FB command for proper sizing of your field data)

Note: The x-y positions would be values you enter regarding where you want to position this example text box.

Note:  The Long Text Box viewed below is positioned based on the Command Font Position x-y parameters and positioning in the WYSIWYG view has no effect. i.e. Moving the displayed field image around on the label has no effect on the positioning, only the ^FOx,y values.

Additional Information

It is important that as you design your label that you assure you have accommodated the area where the text will print. Also when setting the keyboard input parameters enter the maximum number of characters you expect since truncation will occur if you enter more characters than specified.
