How do I write copy and paste full paragraphs into a text object. You can't do it in Text "properties". It limits the amount, or rather, it will only paste the first sentence of the paragraph and not the rest. How do I write large amounts of text into a Text object?

I don't want to have to use large jpeg images instead of just using a single Text object... please, can someone tell me how to copy and paste full paragraphs into a Text object?

You can use a text file and load it at startup, or build it up in events.

I found that even large text files will blackout when too big, in terms of height; but I finally realized the exact height size you need to make sure that the blackout doesn't occur.... and that number is, 2000px. Anything over that number will always blackout (at least it did for me).

Hope this information helps someone (it had me going nuts for a while)....
