Clip and ellipsize text in Fixed size text blocks

  1. Idea is that the text block should keep all the text but everything that goes beyond the block must be clipped (the same as Clip content for frames).
  2. Ideally, an ellipsys (three dots) should be placed at the end of this block (similar to text-overflow: ellipsis in CSS).

Agreed, great idea. And to go above and beyond, let us pick if we want front-line, end-line, or mid-line truncation. :slight_smile:
