Getting textShift To Shift Down?

Hi Scott,

the following works for me in 7.0.6

textSize 14, textheight 28, fixed lineHeight


set the textShift of char 1 to - 1 of field 1 to -9

then a slider with values from - 9 to - 3

on scrollbarDrag pValue
   set the textShift of word 2 of line 1 of field 1 to pValue
end scrollbarDrag

this pushes word 2 of line 1 of field 1 down. If I use values above - 3,
e.g. -2 or 0 then it pushes the text up again.

Maybe this is an option to set the textshift of the whole text to a negative
number and then move down the text by setting it to another negative number
but not as high as the whole text.

Kind regards
