How do I stop the text from falling out of the textbox?

Just started using Construct 2? Post your questions here

When I try to move a textbox, e.g. with 8Direction behaviour, the box moves where it's supposed to, but the text starts falling below it.
I'm not sure if the problem is with my settings in Construct 2 or in my browser.
How should I go about solving it?

What a funny problem!

One way to solve it is to change the Properties > Type of the text box to 'Textarea' instead of the default 'text.'
Worked for me, but I don't know why...

As an aside... Really curious as to why you'd want to move a text box with 8Direction behavior in the first place... ? =)

I didn't want to do 8Direction specifically, I was just testing out motion for other purposes. All the motion behaviours had the same result.
