Invoice Payment – Long name issue

The name of our organisation is so long that reaches over to the right hand side of the generated PDF invoice and overwrites the “Primary Attendee ID:” part of the line on the right hand side.

Is there a way to change the generated invoice so that either:
1. The name is output on a separate line below that of the Date and Primary Attendee ID: lines.
2. The name can be made to go over two lines.

Your help with this would be most appreciated.

Best regards, Lloyd Borrett (for Andrew Clarke)

Hi Andrew,

This took me a while to find.

At line 121 in event-espresso/gateways/invoice/template.php is this

//Set the top left of invoice below header
$pdf->SetFont('Times', 'BI', 14);
if (isset($invoice_payment_settings['payable_to'])) {
    $pdf->MultiCell(0, 10, pdftext($invoice_payment_settings['payable_to']), 0, 'L'); //Set payable to
} else {
    $pdf->MultiCell(0, 10, pdftext(''), 0, 'L'); //Set payable to

Where it says Multicell(0,10, if you change the 0 to another number (on both lines) it will limit the width of that title and force it onto a secondary line.

Maybe start with 100 or so and see how it looks.
