I am new to Affinity Designer and Publisher so I may have something setup wrong. When using the frame text tool in Designer, I am unable to get the text to automatically flow to the next line when it reaches the end of the frame. Also, when I try to utilize a soft return (option+shift+return) to force the the text to the next line, the text starts again on the same lime. Attached are screen shots, the 1st showing the text not dropping to the next line in the frame, and the 2nd showing the text starting again on the same line when using a soft return.

What am I missing or doing wrong? Thanks or your help.

No Break (Character panel) would explain the text not wrapping.

It would not explain that shift+return behavior, though. For that, check the Leading Override in the Character panel, just above the No Break option in the Positioning and Transform section of the panel: image.png.c5d8965f0028dd809acd5f5936f3cde3.png

Thanks for your help.

When I select the text frame, there is not a check mark in the box for the"No Break" option in the Character pallet. Also the value in the leading override box is set to zero. I just opened up a new document and used the text frame tool and had the same result, with No Break and leading override set to zero.

I have the same problem right now. Its very annoying.

If you can share a document that exhibits that behavior, one of us may be able to explain it to you.

It looks to have something to do with the text /frame setting. I could fix it by applying "no style" and then another standard style. It disappeared after I started working on the file today after closing it yesterday. Can't reproduce it right now.
