      Multi-line text: The text is displayed on multiple lines. If the text does not completely fit into the symbol, the remaining text is cut off and is replaced with three dots (...).

      Single-line text: The text is displayed on one line. If it extends beyond the border of the object, the remaining text is cut off and is replaced with three dots (...).
