Graph Text Box larger than standard on Graph possibilities

Hi Forum,

I want to have a larger than normal text box on my graph to identify the Project name & also some smaller ones to advise the steps taken through the Project.

I'm using EG 5.1 & the text is truncated in the 'Note' nodes & I'm not aware of how to place a larger text box on the graph.

Is this possible?

Thanks in advance.

No, not within EG 5.1.  But if you haven't seen these, here are some project organization "best practices":

From your description, I'm guessing that you're talking about the Process Flow and the Note feature.  With EG 5.1 you have limitations, as you have seen.  You cannot resize the Note or exert much control over how much text is displayed.

In EG 6.1 the Notes feature received a big upgrade, allowing you to add "sticky note" style notes:

Thanks Chris,

Is there a way to code a resizeable / colourable note window in the meantime?
