    Unhappy Why do new lines not appear in my text label?
    I wrote this code in my "viewDidLoad" function in my iOS project.

    lettersLeftLabel.text = @"ABCDEFGH\nIJKLMNOP\nQRSTUVWX\nYZ";
    "lettersLeftLabel" is an IBOutlet denoting a text label.

    However, no newlines appear. Why?

    A UILabel does not support multiline text, but the NSTextField used in Mac OSX projects does.

    So you will have to use a UITextView object in your iOS projects, for multiline text, and if you set it's
    editable property to false in the attributes inspector, then it will serve the same purpose as an UILabel.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards Mark
