How severely does this bug affect you?: 

●●●○ — It prevents me from completing a specific task with Vuo.

Steps causing the bug to occur: 

  1. Make a composition using Make Text Field
  2. Type in text field until the length of the characters are longer than the text field
  3. Look at the growing text field

Other notes: 

Expected behavior is scrolling the text preserving the Text Field size. As the field can overlap other UI elements and will not clear on hitting enter, it can break compositions using the feature


Agreed that we should fix

Agreed that we should fix this. It was one of the known limitations in the initial release of the node since, unfortunately, it's not a simple fix. Thanks for creating a bug report to help us prioritize this.

In case you're curious, the reason it's not simple is that we'll have to implement the scrolling behavior pretty much from scratch. Even those things as basic as masking out the text so it doesn't spill over outside of the field, converting between Vuo coordinates and character offsets to identify which character the user clicked on, etc.
