Wrong cursor position in fields

Post by Little_Nemo » Tue Nov 01, 2016 6:20 pm

Hello,
I'm sorry to bounce off the opposite goal of this post (at the same time it is related somewhere), but is anyone know a solution to this recurring problem :evil: with all LiveCode versions: the cursor is offset from the actual insertion point with a long line of text if options fixedLineHeight and dontWrap are set to false.

With your example, by disabling fixedLineHeight, dontWrap and creating a long line here is the result:

The LiveCode field is completely unusable in this case. But this is indispensable if we want to offer the user a field to enter long sentences or paragraphs with the ability to insert images in his text.

I've taken the liberty of moving your post into its own thread so folks searching here can find posts related to specific issues more easily. Going forward please open a new thread for a new topic.

As for your post itself, I believe that may be a known bug, in progress now:

If you find your recipe doesn't match that one let's discuss to see if we need to file a separate bug report.

Sorry for this bad practice.
I made a comment on a bug post that you specified.
It's the good one.
I hope a solution for a long time.
