Dear Albert, Yes, I was aware of your CellPrint solution. However, that could not be used in my problem, where the Row is an element of a Column, something like Framed[Column[{CellPrint[TextCell[Row[{Button["Buttontext",Null]," ","These sentences form a very long text. These sentences form a very long text. These sentences form a very long text. These sentences form a very long text. These sentences form a very long text. These sentences form a very long text. These sentences form a very long text. These sentences form a very long text. These sentences form a very long text."}],"Text"]]}]] But your solution made me think it over once again, and it turned out that the following variant does what I am looking for: Framed[Column[{TextCell[Row[{Button["Buttontext",Null]," ","These sentences form a very long text. These sentences form a very long text. These sentences form a very long text. These sentences form a very long text. These sentences form a very long text. These sentences form a very long text. These sentences form a very long text. These sentences form a very long text. These sentences form a very long text."}],"Text"]}, BaseStyle->{FontFamily->"Times"}, ItemSize->60]] Nevertheless, I do not feel quite happy with this solution. Mathematica uses some built-in rules on how strings are displayed, Usually they work fine, but, as in my original question, not always. I was looking for some techniques to control the way Mathematica displays strings, and I could only find the LineIndent option, not an option for having line wrapping as far as possible to the right, or for the second element of a Row not starting at a new line. The solution as we have it now is simply to replace the expression by a text cell. In my more than 20 years of experience with Mathematica I never needed to use a cell in an expression! I think this solution is pretty rude and lacking the standard elegance of Mathematica. But it works, and that is fine.
