To edit an existing text item, or to enter text for a new text item,
click on the text field, and the text field becomes
an in-place text edit window.
Unfortunately, this in-place text edit
has a major limitation in terms of
formatting a text into two or more lines.
Specifically, you would have to learn a couple of new
commands in order to format a multi-line text in
this simple text edit.
For those who are familiar with the spreadsheet software tool
Excel, this would be a plus, since those new commands are exactly
the same commands used in Excel.
Here are the new commands.
Enter: to open or close the edit
Press the Enter key,
the text edit opens.
Press Enter again,
the text edit exits (closes).
Ctrl+Enter: to start a new line or a new text item
Hold down the Ctrl key and
press the Enter key,
the edit will start a new line under the current line,
when it's in the text edit mode.
However, when it's not in the edit mode,
it will add a new text item.
Depending on the available space,
the new item will be either inserted
following the current item when there is enough space
between the current item and its immediate next neighbor,
or appended to the end of the list.
Support you have one line of text
and you want to break it into two lines,
from the middle after the first comma.
Move the cursor to the break point,
and the text edit becomes.
Press the Enter, the text edit exits.
Please note that a new line is displayed
by a long vertical line in the text list.
If you don't like this un-intuitive text edit,
you may use the editor's
text edit window,
which will let you edit the subtitle text in a popup window,
and which has all the standard text editing control.
In summary, we list the most important controls for using this in-place text edit.
Ctrl + Enter
to start a new text line
when a sentence is too long to be display fully on one line.
