Wrapped lines as individual lines--shortcut?

Hi Jim,

If I understand correctly, you want "the formattedText" of the field. If 
you have a field containing a single CR-delimited line, and that line 
wraps and takes up three field display lines, the formattedText of the 
field will contain three CR-delimited lines, each containing only those 
words found in the respective display line.
