The text-based functions (including legend, title, xlabel, ylabel, and zlabel) do not recognise ‘\t’. Insert spaces manually instead.

I add that using ‘\t’ with sprintf in any text-based function has never worked when I tried it. Just use spaces, as I suggested earlier.

title = make_paragraph(sprintf(text),[],[],'12pt');
Whether this will have any effect on the output is a completely different question.
