Diary App height for entry

I can't get the diary entries to show more than one line. I have made the margins ridiculous numbers and still just one line of text. Any suggestions?

[alt text](file://localhost/Users/jake/Desktop/iOS%20Simulator%20Screen%20shot%20Jun%2020,%202014,%2010.35.53%20AM.png "Title")

CGRect boundingBox = [entry.body boundingRectWithSize:CGSizeMake(200.f, CGFLOAT_MAX)
 options:(NSStringDrawingUsesLineFragmentOrigin|NSStringDrawingUsesFontLeading) attributes:@{NSFontAttributeName: font} context:nil];

return MAX(minHeight, CGRectGetHeight(boundingBox) + topMargin + bottomMargin);

code that sets the bounding box

number of lines was set to 1 in storyboard, had to set it to 0 and the app works as it is suppose to.

This worked for me but I'm sure he still had it set to 1 in the video. Unless he did another one of those really quick fixes.

Ive retyped the code from the videos probably 3 times.
