It's because the "Default" style is the default for all objects, and not all objects have an "inside". (Lines, connectors, plain arrows.)
A quick fix: modify the Default style (but then text on those "one dimensional" objects won't come out right):
- Open the "Stylist" (Menu item Format - Styles and formatting, or function key F11)
- Right click on the Default style, and select Modify.
- In the Text tab, tick Adjust to contour.
It's probably better to make a custom style (using the Adjust to contour
setting mentioned ), then apply that style to your flowchart items. Next, you can double click on the style name when no object is selected
, to make it the default style for new objects.
(If you double click on a style with one or more objects selected, the style will be applied to that selection, but not activated for new objects.)
For objects that don't have a straight upper edge (e.g. selections/conditionals), the first line will be quite short, so to avoid an awkward line wrap, start the text with a newline. The Word wrap text in shape
setting (that acknak suggested) would be better, but it seems to be unavailable for styles.
