I am trying to put a long website url into a text box but impress keeps breaking it up. I tried paste special but that didn't do the job. Any ideas?

What do you want to happen if the url is too wide to fit in the text box?

I want to force the urlo to stay together and wrap to the next line.The url has a dash and a ? in it so Impress breaks it at those places. Sorry I wasn't specific last night.

What do you mean with break - wrap? If not, what do you mean with it?

I guess a picture is worth a thousand words!

This is how the url appears in Impress:

http://wo-pub2.med.cornell.edu/cgi-
bin/WebObjects/PublicA.woa/3/wa/viewService?
servicesID=797&parent=Deaf+and+Hard+of+Hearing&website=nyp+psych&wosid=jtnx30czeywuVinjkiQPUM

I want it to run across the text box and then continue on the next line. I can't make it work here either but this is the idea:

blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_blah_

Thanks for trying to help!

There seems to be a Unicode character that can enter before a character to make it non-breaking, but I forgot which character that is.

I thought this paste special might work but it didn't. Thank you for trying to help.

If it's just for effect you can simply enter spaces where you want the text to wrap.
