"height" limit (was FormattedHeight Limit!)

Hi Dan,

I have several fields on one card so I don't want the field to display
on the entire card, as it ruins everything else.  I understand you
are trying to use that as an example, but other than the display what
should I be setting the rect to if not the size of the contents for scrolling?

It is the Livecode "height" variable in pixels that has the limitation of 32,768.

Perhaps if you had some example code to share things might make more sense?

Your help is greatly appreciated!
