      Use html

      eg.

      Edit long node and begin with:

      <html>
      <center>
      <font color = red>
      New
      <br>
      Map
      </font>
      </center>
      _______________

      Does this help?

        I just played around with this - looks to me like long nodes that are html formatted don't wrap.  A solution is to use a single element table with the width hard-coded in pixels.  Here's an example (background and border tags included just for grins):

        <html>
        <table align="center" bgcolor="#00FFFF" border="1" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="200">
        <tr align="left">
        <td>
        <p>Long paragraph that would otherwise wrap in a text only long node.
        <br>
        <p>Long paragraph that would otherwise wrap in a text only long node.
        <br>
        <p>Long paragraph that would otherwise wrap in a text only long node.
        <br>
        <p>Long paragraph that would otherwise wrap in a text only long node.
        <br>
        <p>Long paragraph that would otherwise wrap in a text only long node.
        </td>
        </tr>
        </table>
        </html>

        Use the html to format a node  by editing a long node...

        "Edit a long node" by selecting the node and pressing "Alt + Enter" or by right-clicking and selecting "Edit a long node" or from Edit menu.

        Then enter the html eg

        <html>
        <center>
        <font color = red>
        New
        <br>
        Map
        </font>
        </center>

        (You don't need to close the html tag)

      thanks for help.. but the root node then shows...the following (i pasted your proposal)

      <html>
      <center>
      <font color = red>
      New
      <br>
      Map
      </font>
      </center>

        I just created a new map, and copied the code from above, directly into the root node. Mine displays

        New
        Map

        in red.

        Are you certain that there is nothing else in the node before the <html> tag?

      Or... Create your thing with Frontpage or another WYSIWYG editor. Then copy the source text (starting with <HTML> and ending with </HTML>). You might need to add <HTML> at the begining of your text if Frontpage didn't put it.
      This editor is useful because you could see the width of the text and change it by dragging a side of (for example) a table to make it narrower.
