Allowing multiline text in Grafcet actions (#1673)

Dear Dusan,

I was wondering if it would be possible to allow multiline texts for Actions in the Grafcet diagram. You see, it is quite frequent, that a single Action modifies multiple variables, and it would be nice to have each expression modifying aforementioned variables in their separate lines.

As per the Grafcet standard, each expression is delimited by a semicolon (;), if multiple expressions are present in a single Action.

The semicolon could also be used as an easy way to break lines, programmatically speaking.

Thanks for considering this improvement.

Dear Robert,

Thank you for your feedback. Multi-line is already supported, although the default action for the Enter key for Grafcet elements is renaming confirmation and not the new line.

You can still add another line using CTRL+Enter.

It is also possible to change the default behavior using the Options dialog:

File \ Options \ Diagram Editor (tab) \ Renaming (group) \ Action on Enter press \ Always new line
