    In a recent example 'YANN' posted a capx showing how 'tokencount' and 'tokencount' could be used to display various lines of text. (I cant find the original)

    Anyway...his example only had about 20 lines in the 'Value box'...I want to add over 400.

    When I add 400 lines, the 'CANCEL, BACK and DONE' butttons disappear off the bottom of my monitor, and I have no way of clicking the 'DONE' button.

    I tried using the Keyboard RETURN but nothing happens...Help.

  • You can add more text to it by having a second action that sets the text box to text.text & morestuff.

    So I would have, say 40 lines to start, then add the extra lines using text.text ? Is this the only way it can be done?

  • Well, you could get a monitor with more pixels...

    Aside from that, I'm not sure. I think it might be handy for C2 to implement a scrollbar instead of extending the window.

    Ashley, what do you think?

    ------------------------------------------

    Option 1...Good idea, but got limited funds.

    Option 2..Better idea, I will hang on in case Ashley replies.

    Thanks for your help.

  • Or you can just copy/paste an already quoted text and hit Enter (shortcut to the 'Done' button) (:

    (but don't forget to delete any " inside your text)

  • Thanks Yann, works fine.
