    Scrolling text field


      Am I missing something.  When I have a text field containing more data than than the  size of the filed window,  I can't scroll to read all the data.

          Option 1: In layout mode select the field. In inspector check the box that says Include Vertical Scroll Bar.

          Option 2: In layout mode select the field. Set the tooltip for the field to the field itself. When you hover over it you would get the entire contents but briefly.

          Option 3: Create a popover that shows the entire contents of the field

          Option 4: ??? I'm sure someone will come up with something else.

            Thank you for your response.  I appreciate your time to do this.   I'll give this a shot. 

            I have the tooltip set up but with a large field, it still doesn't display all the data ( 400 +- words)    I believ the scroll bar might work...     Refresh my memory.  where is the set up button of the tooltip  ???   Thanks

              In the inspector look at the position tab to find the tooltip.


              You should try the vertical scroll bar on the data tab of the inspector first.
