I am trying to get text to continue on another line when one line is full. I have entered this code:

if (event.willCommit || event.fieldFull) {

this.getField("Text_2").setFocus();

}

in the custom keystroke field but when I test and type text in when it comes to the end of the line it misses a letter when it drops to the next line.

ie: Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and type

etting industry. Lorem Ipsum ......

This last word whould be 'typesetting' and even though I type the 's' it doesn't show. Any solutions

In case you are still searching for that answer, or in the instance someone else gets this from their Google search.

Under Text Field Properties (double-clicking the form field)>Format>Custom>Custom Keystroke Script | Paste the following:

if (event.fieldFull) {

getField("NAME OF NEXT LINE").setFocus();

}

Whereas the name of the next text box is to take the place of NAME OF NEXT LINE

Furthermore, remember to turn off scrolling text under the Options tab.

Cheers.
