Erratic appearance of scroll bars on left and bottom borders of popover on opening. Possibly a product of the padding set on the popover and how close the contents are placed to the popover borders. Yet repetitively reopening a popover shows that this does not always occur. Being able to place objects flush to popover borders often important to reduce visual clutter. Scroll bars very rarely serve a purpose in popovers. The only time seems to be when content extends past the border of a popover which is of questionable usage. I would like the option to supress the appearance of scroll bars in popovers at all times.

 

How to replicate. Create a popover and place object close or flush with popover margin. Reopen popover several times.

 

Workaround: Use yet another button to open the popover using Go To Object.
