Hi Christian,

The Edit-Text fields in a LogPlot header or footer will extend to accommodate the text that you enter in the data file. For example, if the Edit Text item links to a well name in the data file, a name of "BH-2" will extend just a short ways in the compiled log, while a well name of "Jefferson County Well 123456789" will obviously occupy much more space - something to keep in mind as you design your log layout.

I often use the Default Text field in the Edit Text setup as a way to create a placeholder for a typical entry, be it a date or a name or whatever, so that I know how much space it will occupy in the output log.

Does this answer your question? Let me know if you need add'l details.

I should also note that the text will not wrap in an Edit Text item. If you need to enter a bunch of text, use an Edit Note instead.

Molly, thank you for the suggestions. I start to use the Edit note instead Edit text and it's much better!

Hi Christian,

The Edit Texts work really well for short blocks of text - Dates, driller names, elevations, and such. The Edit Notes work great for text which might be lengthy - comments, site descriptions, etc., because it offers the flexibility of wrapping the text within the available space.
