activity lable width RRS feed

  • Question

  • Each activity in a runbook has the name property. but in the designer if the name is a little longer, it all wraps and you cannot see the full name of the activity in the graphic, is there a way to set the width of the label to bigger or extend?

  • As far as I know there is no option to extend the size of a activity label of an activity in Runbook Designer.

  • Hi,

    pehaps you can use shortcuts? A lable with 2 lines will be showed complete. A space will help to Control the line break. Max 11 Charchters per line.

  • That is too bad, the label is really important in the graphic to show its purpose.

  • two words are easily exceed 11 characters. and it wraps on the second word, then the following line is the same, so I can see only one word in the first line, one word on the second line, and no third line show. 

    Very inconvenient.

  • Please keep in mind:

    The purpose of the Runbook Designer is to create and modify Runbooks not to visualize them nicely.

    I am working with Orchestrator now for some years and I learned how to name the activities with short text ;-) It's a good opportunity to focus on the important words ;-)

    I might getting confused if I have >40 activities in different orders but it's possible ;-)

  • I see the graphic interface is quite like ssdt data tool for integration service, but ssis is much more flexible in the designer, and more visualized. And in fact it seems can do a lot of things that runbook designer does.
