word wrap in Layout Design

I'm trying to set Word Wrap in fields curing layout design.  I don't see the ability to do this.  The attributes section in Help/Fields only talks about Word Wrap for Reports.  Appreciate any guidance.

Re: word wrap in Layout Design

There isn't any option for word wrap in layout designer, it's automatic depending on displayed field height. Dispalayed field height won't auto expand.

Thanks Roy.  does this mean that if I reduce the default field height, it will automatically expand and fill with words as they are typed, as if the width is fixed and acts as a boundary?

No. Field display size, both height and width, is set by the designer and won't change when data exceeds the field display size.
