FormattedHeight Limit!

One thought is to not use scroll the grouped field for your iOS scroller, but rather scroll the field itself.   In your scrollerDidScroll message, scroll the field, not the scroll of the group.  This is what I use when I suspect the FormattedHeight may be larger than the allowable range.

Hope that helps!
