Text Expression length too short
V2.5.5.

I did search for this, but with no luck. I would like to insert some text, but find that the Insert | Text... Text Expression is too limited in the number of characters (78) that it will accept. Does anybody know a (sensible) way round this? Thanks.

I've always found it more than adequate.

This will get you 140 or so:

How sensible it is is another matter...

Thanks for your reply Rick. I was rather hoping not to have to split up my text by hand, but if I have to I have to.

Another display option (still spliting it up by hand) is to have one tranche of text vertically above another tranche, starting in the same place horizontally (etc. until it is all displayed).

I was thinking of Lyrics (on a separate layered staff with only invisible notes), but it seems to enlarge the measure.
So, it is probably worse than what Rick did, but maybe in ideal circumstances you could try Lyrics.

Since the maximum text expression length is somewhat arbitrary, we will up the limit in the next release to a full 255 chars.
