Unfortunately, the Slideshow module cannot automatically wrap text. Therefore, if you have entered a long caption and want to display that caption under an image, the text will (more than likely) end up being truncated – unless you scale the caption really small. To avoid this, insert your own line breaks (in the Caption field in the Metadata panel) using Option + Enter (Mac), Ctrl+Return (Win).

    Hi Julieanne,
    could it be that you meant “Ctrl+Return” instead of “Alt+Return”?
    On my windows 7, LR 3.5 64 Alt+Return does not work, but Ctrl+Return does the job.

    Thank you for catching this and pointing it out! I am not near a Windows machine right now to test but I have corrected my original post…

    Trying to do a multi-row identity plate in LR4, Windows 7. Enter or Ctrl-Enter saves the plate, but doesn’t drop to the next line. Is there a way to do this? Thanks.

      You would have to create the multi-line Identity Plate as a graphic. You can not have a multi-line get Identity Plate.

    Is there a way to change line spacing for multi-line Captions in the Slideshow module? The default line spacing is too great for my liking, taking up too much real estate on the image. Thanks
