Larger Editable Text ? As in several lines height?

Is this possible? and How is it done? I don’t see any property for that. Thanks

It looks like the max height of the editable text is 2 rows at the moment, and the overflow behavior is not ideal for larger paragraphs. I’ll make a note on that, though it could be tweaked using: How to write custom CSS in Retool!

For larger text editing, the best options would be a textinput component that has been resized to be 2+ rows tall, or rich text editor.

Ok, thanks

+1. Just to follow up here this would be extremely helpful to have. Right now the fact that the input portion of editable text can only be one line is extremely limiting and makes this component unusable for larger text blocks. Since the component it self is limited to two rows, editing this via CSS seems not straight forward / extremely hacky but if anyone has the CSS for it and it works well it’s a good temporary solution. Thanks!

@ishields mind sharing a bit more about what you’re building in Retool? Might help me get this prioritized :slight_smile:
