Text File Feature Request

Wed May 01, 2019 9:56 am

There are many, many features one could add to the TextFile module all the way up to fully-fledged DTP and presentation features. While not advocating this much feature bloat, there are a couple of small (and perhaps simple) features which, I think, would improve it by a significant margin.

1. Have the TextFile support \\ the same way the Text module does. This would allow line-formatted text to be more compatible with the Iterator. The \\ would provide line breaks to create paragraphs or wrapped titles while leaving the iterator to iterate over real line breaks in the text file.
2. Wrap text to a specified width. It is extremely tedious and time consuming to manually wrap paragraph text or titles to fit into a specified space.

Perhaps 2 would make the need for 1 moot.

Yes #2 sounds like a better solution, I’ll see what I can do.
