I have a data field in a text box which is longer than the width of the box. When I'm in the editor it shows as wrapping round properly, but when I view it on the live page it just carries on in one line off the edge of the page.

Is there any way to fix this?

Thanks in advance.

Are there any spaces in the text of that field?

No, it's a URL so just continuous text.

Then that is why. At design time, you see what the interface can show you. At run time, it all relies on Postscript. Since there is no space, it forces it on 1 line.

I suggest you convert your Text Object into a PressTalk Object and modify the code so it breaks it after x number of character or on a "/".
