Is there anyway to make a text object scroll?

If you want to append text to a text object once you have appended more text than the object can handle you can see the the new text.

It would be awesome if you could have a textbox like a chat text box and append text and scroll to see the previous text.

You think you can do these things, but you can't, Nemo!
Just keep reading.

If you change the 'Textbox' object type to 'textarea', then when there is too much text it shows a scroll bar. Would that work?

You could use two textbox objects, one editable and one not, and on return pressed, add text to non editable box .

Other than that, I seem to remember someone creating a scrollable text area in a previous post - will take a little searching to find probably.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.
