Why is some of my text not appearing even though I'm within the maximum character count?

7.5. Why is some of my text not appearing even though I'm within the maximum character count?

Adobe Flash, which we use for our multimedia projects, does not support line breaks within text fields. So, if a line break/paragraph break/carriage return is used within a text field in a multimedia project, it will hide all text following the line break, paragraph break or carriage return.

In both multimedia and print projects, typing in ALL CAPS uses more than the estimated characters available, because upper-case characters are much wider than lower-case. We suggest avoiding the use of ALL CAPS, because rather than standing out, it is actually more difficult to read, so the viewer's eye tends to skip over it.

To avoid this problem, remove all line breaks from text fields in Multimedia projects and use proper case instead of ALL CAPS.

Most importantly, always preview your project before publishing.
