I love the ability to add fillable text boxes to a PB. Rather than having to specify a maximum number of lines, would it be possible to get something that has a default minimum (say 1 or 2 lines) and then wraps / scrolls as text is added beyond that number?

lines=  is a minimum, not maximum. You can scroll between lines.

width= is a (generous) minimum as well, and text scrolls beyond the boundary (one line).

Are you sure Dave

I entered a test box in a PB last yesterday evening and entered lines=25. When I entered some test text, I was prevented from entering anything beyond 25 lines.

EDIT: I just tested this again and realized that the text is wrapping and scrolling is functional. I guess what confused me was the absence of any visual indication (like a traditional scroll bar) that this was the case. Thanks Dave

I know you are on PC, but what OS are you running? OSX 10.8 did away with scroll bars being visible until needed… I know this OS level behavior effects other apps… could that be the issue?

I think there is a way on Win 7 to turn scroll bars off until needed, I have never played dug into it to figure it out. Scroll bars do appear in all of the programs I use by default.

I am able to reproduce the issue of scroll bars not showing up on Windows. I will report this to Development.

This will be fixed in 5.1 Release Candidate 1.
