Hello Paul,

You can tweak this file with a text editor:

/Applications/LiveCode 9.6.9 (rc

/* Creates the prompt field if there is not one already created */
if the number of fields of me is 0 then
   create field in this card of me
   set sharedText of it to true
   set dontWrap of it to false
   set lockText of it to true
   set opaque of it to false
   set traversalOn of it to false
   set showBorder of it to false
   set vScrollbar of it to true
   set width of it to 293
   set height of it to 342
   set the fixedLineHeight of it to "false"   /// <---- ADD THIS LINE
end if

Note you have to quit LC first, then make this change, then save it.

Kind regards,
