    InDesign CS5: Formatting of Text Variable text

    bigdaddyhame

      Hello!

       

      I'm setting up a template for a flyer page with an assortment of image boxes grouped with text boxes.  I apply text variables to the text boxes to pick up metadata from the images.

       

      What I'm struggling with is that the text variables seem not to want to wrap to the next line in the box, instead the text is squeezed to a single line and I can't seem to force it to do otherwise without first converting the variable back to static text.  Is there a way to do this while still preserving the link?

       

      any help would be appreciated, thanks!
