Getting textShift To Shift Down?

Hi Scott - I think you might be able to do something by manipulating the
margins of the field as well as the textShift.

I did a test with 2 basic fields - one containing the text and the other
the value I wanted to adjust the textshift by...

Contents of fld 1

word1 word2 word3
word1 word2 word3

word1 word2 word3


Script of fld 2

on returnInField
  lock screen
  put me into y
  if (pMargins is empty) or  (y<0)  then put "8,8,0,0" into pMargins #
default margins
  put pMargins into tMargins
  set the textShift of word 2 of line 3 of fld 1 to y
  if y „ 0 then
    add y to item 2 of tMargins
  end if
  set the margins of fld 1 to tMargins
  unlock screen
end returnInField

Šmy test was pretty basic but it seemed to work under these conditions.

Regards,

Terry...
