Multi-line text in parameter

Multiline parameter

When entering in data for Family parameters, despite only having a single line field you can still enter multiple lines of text.

By doing so you can control when the text in a Tag Label drops down to a new line. Alternatively you have to rely on the predefined width of the Tag’s Label to force a new line.


  1. Select in the text field where to insert a new line.
  2. On the keyboard press CTRL and ENTER together.
