It would be nice to be able to wrap the text in long headings. The heading box has handles that suggest we can reshape the box, but it is constrained to one line. It will be useful to have extended explanatory text for a field that the user can read or refer to on screen.

Also, to facilitate entering long text, it would be VERY useful to allow the user to paste text from the clipboard. Since <ctrl>v or <command>v have another meaning in the field properties dialogue, this could be added to the edit menu (e.g. Paste text)

I think we can use Notes to deal with this, but it is awkward to have to read the explanation in another window. I'll play with window placement to see if this can work OK. Showing notes as a hint does not leave the text on screen long enough.
