DrawVectorParagraph(Text$, Width.d, Height.d [, Flags])
Draw a paragraph of text (multiple lines) within a given bounding box with automatic layout for linebreaks. If the text does not fit the defined box, it will be cut at the end. The font to use can be set with VectorFont().


Text$ Specifies the text to draw.
Width.d Specifies the width for the paragraph. Line breaks will be added if text is longer than the specified width.
Height.d Specifies the maximum height for the paragraph. If the text does not fit within this height it will be cut. The required height for a paragraph can be calculated with VectorParagraphHeight().
Flags (optional) Can be one of the following values:
  #PB_VectorParagraph_Left  : The paragraph is aligned to the left (default)
  #PB_VectorParagraph_Right : The paragraph is aligned to the right
  #PB_VectorParagraph_Center: The paragraph is centered
  #PB_VectorParagraph_Block : Lines in the paragraph are spaced to form a block of text (not supported on Windows)
