Just setup a room tag so the room name parameter wraps after the required distance.  Then move the number down so it allows enough room for when the room name is two lines.

Edit your room tag family.

Select the room name parameter, you'll see a crop box show.  Adjust it to the desired length where you want it to start wrapping text.  - good idea is to type in some sample text that you want to show on two lines.

Then check to see the justification of your room name label.  Most like it should be set to top and left aligned.

Now move the number label down so it doesn't overlap your room name parameter.

Either save the family over your old one (only if you don't want your old one) OR save as a new family with a new name.  Then load it into your project and swap out the existing room tags for that one.

HTH.

Mr. Spot, why not just edit an existing family room tag and just insert room number label  below room name and save as?

Here is a sample one

OOOps,sorry i think i have misunderstood your question... but why why not just insert the comments label, in place of the name label (or both) with the number below? The comments label gives you two lines.
