iOS Question TextView Carriage Return

I have chosen a textview in order for the user to put comments related to a certain part of the app.
The problem im having is that im taking that textview and pushing it on a canvas to print as pdf.

It works well, only if the person presses "Enter" to do the carriage return. I would see something such as:

Bla..." in the textview AND in the pdf.

If the person doesn't press the "Enter" i am screwed, the textview sees the text as a single line and not multiple line, therefore there is no "Chr(13)" or carriage return at the end of the line...

In the textview i would see:

"blablablablablablablabla <- end of textview width

In my pdf i would see the string without any type of carriage return...
Something like that:


In other words, even though the textview shows a carriage return because of the textview width, it is not written in said txtview.text

Any libraries, classes or trick im missing here?

Is it possible to catch an event due to the word wrapping. What i mean is, is it possible to catch the event of the fake carriage return... that way i could manually add a chr(13)...
