    multi-line grayed out when editing text in Installer pages

    When I edit the Page properties the Other properties are grayed out except for Horizontal Alignment. The multi-line selection is what I am after as I found there is a text limit in the text boxes (and did expand the box to allow for more text). I am hoping that the multi-line will enable me to add more text.

    In lieu of this is there a way to add an additional text box to the page?

    Has anyone run across this and/or has this feature worked for others?

    I am using version 2 build 45.

    Sorry...some additional information.

    It is only in the static text fields that this is occurring...so the limit is 255 characters(sans punctuation).

    The option is disabled because it has no effect on static texts. IIRC unfortunately the 255-character limitation is a Windows limitation. You have to split your text into the various static text controls.

    Thanks Yves for the info. Along with what you did say, I take it that additional text blocks can Not be added to the page. Definitely not a deal breaker and will make do. :-)
