No, wrapping on Rev only works with white space.
So I wrote a routine to space out a long URL to fit a specific field:
command formatFolderPath pFieldName
repeat while the formattedWidth of fld pFieldName >= the width of
-- find the last slash & replace with slash & cr
put the text of fld pFieldName into tFolder
repeat with x = the number of chars in tFolder down to 1
if char x of tFolder = slash and char x+1 of tFolder <> cr then
put cr after char x of tFolder
put tFolder into fld pFieldName
Then when using the file path, you just need to make sure you replace
cr with empty and you get back to the original.
There are obvious improvements that could be made, but for a quick
fix, it works OK.
