Does Info Text box scroll?

Post by jonljacobi » Thu May 13, 2021 12:02 am

I can't seem to get it to do it, but I might me doing something wrong. I can put a lot more text in there than I can see, even if I expand the edit pane to full height. Basically, I'd like to include lyrics with every project, but while I can paste them in, I can't actually see them if they extend beyond the boundaries of the info box. I'm going to make a suggestion unless someone tells me I'm wrong.

Yep, it's quite archaic...
You can either extend its height, or put your "text marker" like if you want to write something in here, and use the arrow down key to "scroll" down.

There are a couple of devices/controls with Info Text that doesn't fit in the box and there's no way to scroll it.
Can't find an example right now, but I'll post next time I see one.

I use this: https://codefn42.com/vstnotepad/index.html
Type all the text you want.
I am sure there are other similar VSTs around...
