workaround for cut-off text in native scroller?

I usually put one empty line at the end of the field and increase the 
native scroller content height by twice or three times the textheight of 
the field. The amount of extra space required in the scroller depends on 
the text size and textheight.

I think the problem is an incorrect calculation of the formattedHeight of 
the field or group. BTW, did you group the field? It won't scroll smoothly 
unless you do, and the group should scroll rather than the field. The field 
inside the group should be sized to its full height with its top aligned to 
the top of the group. Set the group margins to 0 and the layermode of the 
group to "scrolling".
