line wrap in caption dialog box

It would be really helpful if the Caption line in the "Info" panel would use line wrapping.  In other words, my preferred behavior when my typing gets to the end of the line would be to start a new line rather than having to scroll inside of that tiny little dialog box.

My wife puts together a photo album each month and nicely captions all of them.  It is surprisingly difficult to proof read them prior to posting.  In fact, it is such a pain that I end up publishing the album and going to the web browser view to read them, and then I flip back to lightroom and correct any mistakes.  I would greatly prefer to just stay in lightroom the whole time!

I agree that would be good, but in the meantime if I need to enter captions within one of the cloud client apps I would use the web browser to enter them, not just for proof-reading. The Web app does support line wrapping, and having both the browser window and the desktop app open at the same time is not a problem for me.

Jim -- thanks for the tip!  You're right that the web page version of the app does a better job of handling the captions than the desktop app!  Clearly it shouldn't be that way.  I will use your tip while I wait for this to hopefully be improved in the desktop app!
