Subject: text object with multiple lines

Hello,


I recently added text-objects to some plotted graph. Now I will have a
multiple-line text-object, but have no idea how to get this worked out ...

This is my one-line example:

text(0,1,'Here is the text')


Now i tried to have two lines of text like this

text(0,1,'this is firstline \n this is second line')

But this did not work (actually the linefeed \n seems not to work here).
Maybe anyone has some idea how I can add multiple-line text (or
textboxes) to my plot?
I really appreciate any suggestions!


Many greetings from Finland!

Hi,

figure
text(0,0.8,['this is firstline' char(10) 'this is second line'])
text(0,0.4,{'this is firstline';'this is just another line'})

See also the "Multiline Text" section in the text doc page.
