hi there - 

 

many thanks dear requinix - great to hear from you. 

the above mentioned example is only a little (and trivial) one - see below the more realistic one. 

 


+-------------------------+                        +------------------------------------------+    |  vvloremipsumcallemadridlor           |
| loremipsumcallemadridlor|                        |      loremipsumcallema                   |    +---------------------------------------+
+----------+--------------+                        +------------------------------------------+
           |
         +-+--------------------+                        +--------------------------------------+
         | loremipsumcallemad   |                        |    Bloremipsumcallema                |
         |                      |                        |                                      |
         +----------------------+                        +--------------------------------------+
           +-------------------------------+                +------------------------------------------+
           |   loremipsumcallemadridl      |                |     loremipsumcallemadridlor             |
           |                               |                |                                          |
           +-------------------------------+                +------------------------------------------+
               +-----------------------------------+
               |  loremipsumcallemadridlor	   |
               |                                   |
               +-----------------------------------+

    +----------------------------------+
    |loremipsumcallemadridlo           |
    |                                  |
    +----------------------------------+
    +------------------------------------+
    | loremipsumcallemadrid              |
    |                                    |
    +------------------------------------+

 

so - again how to achieve a extension of such a ascii-art example!? 

 

love to hear from you

It's more complicated, but yes it can be done in Notepad. You just need to add spaces in the necessary spots to get the boxes to align how you want them.
