Action Effects - text wrapping
« on: June 17, 2016, 06:35:40 pm »
You can add an "effect" to an action and optionally display this on the diagram (Action Properties dialogue | Effect Tab)

EA seems to ignore any line feeds and puts the entire expression on one line ???

Does anyone know if there's some kind of text wrapping function that needs to be turned on?

Thanks everyone!

Hi,

as fare as I know there is no possibility to visualize linefeed.

According to userguide you may define the action's duration in JavaScript.

You can make a feature request or use:
  • Tagged Value
  • Note field


of Elements to specify and visualize importend things of the Element at hand.

Note:
You may link a Note to an Action and visualize Action features(other Elements too) like Note,Tagged Values,... This is powerful and a lot of people aren't aware of this.

To visualize Element features just right click on the link between Element and Note and choose: Link this Note to an Element feature.

Thanks for that... unfortunately, the link to element feature option does not include the Action Effect so it looks like I'll just use the notes instead.

You should send in a feature request for that.
