    Nothing but a simple textbox.

    Steps to Reproduce Bug

    The text is only on one line, and vertically centered.

    I tried from two different computers : Windows 10 Service Pack (?) and Windows 8 service Pack (?).

  • Closing as won't fix: the expected result is incorrect, text boxes are single-line by design unless you choose textarea mode. This is how browsers implement them, not Construct 2. The positioning isn't centered but I don't think this aspect is standardised. The editor representation is never going to be exact either since form controls are rendered differently in browsers so it's just basically a placeholder; for example the checkbox control doesn't really look like what you really get either.

  • Got it! Sorry about that and thank you for your answer!
