I saw the thread a bit late but here is the thing that "popped" to mind...
Before i typed the fourth word in reply, I said basta! Script it!

So StripesList.rev is a cool 5 minute hack template to demo how to make
stripes scroll in all simplicity!

It's the last item in the list.  

Not all the field (returnkey, pastekey, dropin in the field) are implemented
but you can add them and reply back with you additions so I can improve on
the basic model - the "striping synchronizer" for the field is in the card
script.

The scrolling is handled by the field only (could be solidified with an
add-on or two* in the card script for saves, and opens from last sessions).
But hey, that's not paying my bills... Im just trying to help scroll the
stripes! ;)

Since MetaCard, my script editor templates have scrolling line-number rulers
for easier error-to-script navigation! These allow selections in the script
editor that are much easier than dragging the mouse in the editor's field! I
have to work on that editor again soon for some more nitrous!!! But now it
will be even more colorful! ;)

OK, that's old looks, I know... (neither the last release posted - and far
from the current version which is the transcriptolator and EditN2O!) That
was MetaCard!

My new workbench is much better and uses lists a lot!!!

And this trick will be something that be welcome in my bag of tricks! Thanks
again for the idea! Enjoy the stack!

ciao!
