Text Field in LC 7

I like both those ideas.
I have mixed feelings about the option to not change line wrapping until a
resize is over. Sounds like it would help in the situation we're
discussing but it also feels like a workaround for something that should
really work. Could this be connected with the use of native controls, or
lack thereof, in Livecode?
I should also say that I'm not seeing the line wrapping delay in TextEdit.
I'm on Yosemite and when I resize a TextEdit window horizontally, I see the
line wrapping changing as the resize is happening not when I stop resizing.
Maybe there's a Preference setting that affects things?
