# Extension to wrap text automatically in form controls, specifically checkboxes? [closed]

OS Mojave, libreoffice 6

I'm using Form Control Checkboxes within a Writer table to check off tasks that have been completed. However, I would like the checkboxes to wrap automatically when they reach the end of the cell i.e. to automatically start at the next line down- is there an extension for this out there somewhere? I see no options for this when editing each checkbox.

Appreciated!

Hello,

The ability to wrap the text (label in this case) is a property of the control. On the General tab of the controls property, set Word break to Yes.

This does not automatically adjust any height factor needed for displaying all the text. The control itself must be tall enough to show all lines, and in this case, the row must be tall enough to hold the height needed for the control.

Your sample, as is, will only show two lines of text, and if resized to the existing row height, only three lines. All the text presented needs five lines:
