Scroll bar in text field without allowing entry

Recommended Posts

This has got to be simple, but my mind is somehow missing the necessary "search" features at the moment! crazy.gif

I have a text field that has a lot of text in it, so I need to display a scroll for my readers. But how do I do this without giving them entry into the field itself (they could change my text!) ?

Using FM7.

TIA.

In v6, you do this by going into layout mode, and select the field. Then Go to Menu >> Format >> Field Format. The dialog box has the option to show scroll bar.
