Fontlab - how to get multi-line preview?

Ryan Maelhorn's picture

I would have thought this would be as simple as entering a long string of text, but it seems oddly difficult to preview more than 1 line (vertical line) of text in the preview pane of Fontlab 5. I can't find an option for this either. Do I need to use line break "characters" some how? Surely this is possible.

\n = line break, e.g.:

Insert a line break\nbefore this

I think the only automatically line break is available in the Metrics window.

Uh, thanks John! Never knew that before.

Thanks, John.

Edit: never mind, was thinking Metrics window rather than Preview panel.
