Long document variable does not respect document borders

Post by kjmatthews » Tue Mar 20, 2012 1:09 am

Let's say I have a document in which I've defined a document variable as "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious supercalifragilisticexpialidocious supercalifragilisticexpialidocious supercalifragilisticexpialidocious supercalifragilisticexpialidocious supercalifragilisticexpialidocious". When I print this variable in the document, it overflows the document's borders instead of breaking onto different lines. Is there any way to make it behave properly, like regular text?

Sounds like a bug that should be reported to the redlers.

wow. this is still the case, five years later. makes document variables totally useless for anybody who has to have a long title, which in academic writing is not that rare.

I can now confirm that this bug is still present in Mellel 4
