Can labels be automatically word wrapped?

0 votes
In setting labels for objects the manually wrapping of text is the most time consuming part. If a property of the object could be set to word wrap based on the width of the object that would save a lot of time.

Automatic word wrapping can be enabled by setting (label) property "Configuration" to "Cropping". (Yes, I know - "cropping" is not wrapping. Still, yEd's cropping configuration does both - cropping and wrapping.) Additionally, you also need to set property "Size" to a value other than "Fit Content".

There are some limitiations, though: The cropping and wrapping algorithmus always works with the rectangular bounds of the corresponding node. The cropping configuration does not support HTML formatted text or label icons.
