Re: Fixed Yet? Three Questions

Hi stephenmcnutt,
P.S. I never have success searching this forum because all the relevant words are deleted from my search due to their being too common. Really, it renders the search tool useless.

Re: Keep stack from moving when keyboard is activated

Hi Will,
You can turn acceleratedRendering on and off at any time.
