Getting text into a Livecode field

If one enters multi-line text, then clicks on another tab in the Props 
palette, then clicks on the 'house' again
the Content field resizes to accommodate the text, but is does not do 
that as one types: so one has to keep
tab-clicking back and forth as one types . . .
