Multiline labels in Windows

0 votes
I am rtrying to create a two line label in yEd in windows. Whe you do it in Mac the dialog opens and there is a full control over the label. When you do it in Windows only text of the label can be changed. Any tricks to know of for the windows version?

Aside from keybindings, yEd is exactly the same on all platforms. I.e. everything you can do on Mac OSX, you can do on Windows (and Linux) as well.

  1. For inline label editing on Mac OSX select a node, then type ENTER and start typing. On Windows/Linux, select a node, then type F2 and start typing.
  2. For opening the multi-line text editor on Mac OSX, select a node, go to yEd's properties view in the lower right corner, and click into the right half of the "Text" value field. On Windows/Linux, select a node, go to yEd's properties view in the lower right corner, and click into the "Text" value field near its right border.
  3. Finally, the element properties dialog also has a multi-line text field included. On Mac OSX, select a node and then type COMMAND+I. On Windows/Linux, select a node and type F6.
