Text wrap in Act 2008 layout

I have one larger field (multiple line) in my contacts layout which in past versions would wrap the text.  But it just stays in one line.  I have looked over the properties for the field and nothing seems like it would be related to the wrap.

 

Any suggestions...thanks

Add a memo field and copy the data to that field. Memo fields will work wrap, ordinary character fields will not.
