You have to tell it where to wrap the prompts, not just to wrap the prompts. I don't have Designer on this computer, but I'll give it a shot:

In the Preferences, in the Item - Layout section, there is a prference for the "Item Prompt Split Marker" or something close. Set this to be some character, I suggest the vertical bar "|". Then in your module definition, in the item definition (DCU in v1), in the Prompt property, put the split marker where you want the prompt broken.

Note: It will only break (wrap) the prompt if the generator thinks it'll help save space.

Prompt Split Preference = |
The Prompt property for an item = Home Phone|Number

If the generator decides that splitting the prompt saves space, then the prompt would look like:

Home Phone
