Permit Scrolling in a Non-Enterable (Read-Only) Text Field

Idea created by richardsrussell on Apr 4, 2016

    I've set up a series of floating document windows that my users can pop open to read information on how to use particular parts of the database. I enter that info in global fields that I've temporarily set to permit entry in Browse mode, but I make them un-enterable by the user before deploying them, so I know that my notes will remain intact, as I've written them. In effect, I'm creating a read-only space.


    Unfortunately, as soon as the field is non-enterable, it's also non-scrollable, and that places an irritating artificial limit on how much information I can impart to my users on a given subject. I can't imagine what benefit is obtained by denying users the ability to scroll a non-enterable text field, but I wish that FMI would lift that restriction.
