So I changed the console font size using these instructions:

How To Change The Command Line Font Size

That fixed the issue which apparently related to text wrapping.

Not sure if this was the only/best way to change the font. Mark, in your tut on setting up the console on PiScreen you have the following as step 2:

2. Update cmdline.txt

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo nano /boot/cmdline.txt
Add the text below to the end of the first line. Not on a new line as this will not work.
Rotate will rotate the console on PiScreen. Rotate can be 0, 1, 2 or 3.

fbcon=map:10 fbcon=rotate:2 fbcon=font:ProFont6x11

I am wondering what is the purpose of the fbcon=font:ProFont6x11. Would I be able to select a different default font by changing this?

Thanks!
