Visio - preventing wrapping in the object labels

I want the text for my objects to stretch right to left as much as needed rather than wrapping to a new line as seen in the attached screen grab.  I am using Vision 2010.  What's the secret?

Of course, if this last tip works, you'll want to edit the master for the shape, instead of each shape on the page.

You can edit the formulas for masters stored in a document by going to the Document Stencil.

It is difficult to edit the source stencils that ship with Visio, but you can edit a copy of a master, then save it to your own custom stencil, stored in My Shapes. Unfortunately there are a lot of permutations and steps involved, so I'll refer you to another source.

For more about stencils and masters, see this article:
