NVM just read your last sentence. I suppose then that the autoTab property for scrolling fields should be disabled, or invisible in the inspector. No big deal.

> Tab on return (i.e., autoTab) only happens when you are on the last line of the field. So in a 3-line field, a return key will only tab to the next field if the cursor is on line 3, otherwise it inserts a carriage return. Scrolling fields have no "last" line, they are infinite, so autoTab never triggers on those.
