[Xerte] Re: Overflow:scroll; equivalent on category item holding boxes

You'd have to mask the target movie clips, and then add the scrollbar component to them, but I'm not sure if that's a good idea usability wise, and I don't know what implications that would have for the code that positions the labels as they get dropped in. Does it make sense to build two smaller interactions rather than one big one?

Subject: [Xerte] Overflow:scroll; equivalent on category item holding boxes

I am making a lot of use of the drag-and-drop categories interaction in Xerte, generally using just two categories, with each being assigned too many items to display on screen at one time.

I've noticed that as category items are dragged into the appropriate box by the user, the box does not start to scroll its content when it is filled. Instead, categories continue to 'click' into place but overflow off the edge of the box, under the 'check answers' button, and off the edge of the window. You can see an example at: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/52591753/xertecategoryscroll.png.

Does anyone know of a way to add scrollbars? I've generated the resource in the online toolkit, but am happy to tinker with the desktop Xerte application if necessary.
