I’m struggling to get a label node to match the width of its parent centre container. If I set autowrap to off, it overflows the container. But if I set autowrap to word, it inserts a line break after every space.
I have the centre container set to full rect, and there’s plenty of space for the label to grow horizontally before wrapping.
I’m sure there’s something basic I’m missing, I just can’t figure it out
Have you tried changing the
Container Sizing options?

I can’t edit the container sizing property on the label, because its controlled by its parent container. And the Center container is set to fill on both H and V.
When I select the label in scene view, you can see its y container size is like 1px wide, but if I select the center container, the y size is full width.

Indeed, the children’s
Layout of the
CenterContainer node can’t be edited (at least the
Container Sizing property can’t be edited). Have you tried using other containers? Maybe use a

If I nest the Label within a
V/HBoxContainer, I can set the
custom_minimum_size of the container to allow it to be full width. However, I feel like this goes against the whole point of using containers to automatically size and place items. I can also set the
custom_minimum_size of the label directly to the same effect.
In the tooltip for the
custom_minimum_size property, it reads:
If it’s set to (0,0), the node sizes automatically to fit its content, be it a texture or child nodes.
However, this seems to not be happening in this case. With autowrap set off, it seems to be functioning correctly. Is this a bug or intended feature? Perhaps I am not understanding the design philosophy correctly!

Would you like the
Label node have a look similar to this?
