      On my Records I have one large text field for entering a lo of information.   When I access the record I have an issue scrolling the text within this text field.  Is the only solution to m are the field layout larger  ?

          Perhaps you could incorporate a popover on your layout so that you don't need to actually resize your layout.  The Popover could take up a majority of layout for those time when you need the extra space to enter in data.

            Thank you Steve for responding to my inquiry.   Challenge ?  How do I create a Popover on my layout.  Would it pop up every time I went to enter data in that text field.     Thanks again   Best Wishes,    G. Boyce Bazzell (Bazz)
