Text flow in node

0 votes
Please include a feature that automatically generates a line break if the text in a node is wider than the node. Or allow the node to grow with the text size.

Please see: http://yed.yworks.com/support/qa/774.

Or in the Preferences dialog:
File menu > Preferences... > Editor tab > Dynamically Adjust Node Size to Label Size

This is not quite what I am looking for. I guess the better option than "Dynamically adjust node size to text" would be to adjust the label height to fit text while keeping the node and label width the same.
Please include in future upgrade.
Sorry, I assumed Q&A 774 would have a pointer to answer your request.

Please see here:
the section 'Automatic Text Wrapping' has a discussion of the 'Cropping' label configuration.
Great! Thanks for pointing this out
This option should come configured as default, it seems much more intuitive to me...
