Monte,

Ok, good to know I wasn’t losing my mind!   I have put in the bug report.  I have to release this app in about a month.  Maybe it will get fixed by then.

Thank you!!

For widgets that are in groups we create an extra container layer view to put them in so they should be clipped to the group rect and also as close as possible respect the layering of objects on the card. It sounds like it’s working correctly for you on mac but not on iOS. Could you open a report with an example stack please?

I find that if I put the bowser widget in a group, it draws within the group’s bounds like other controls.  What I’m experiencing is that on Mobile (at least iOS), it’s acting like a standard native control, not like it does on desktop.

>>> I am working on a mobile app where I have a bowser widget in a group that is scrollable. It scrolls just fine (frankly, smoother that I thought it would!). However, there is a problem when the widget gets scrolled past the bounds of the group’s rect. On my mac, it’s working correctly, but on a real device (and the simulator), the bowser widget is being shown even outside the rect of the group – like it’s not in the group.
