MVO Object Interface - can't place text outside bounds

derekjackson

Hi, I'm creating a custom MVO object to control a series of other objects. The online guidance suggests we can specify larger UI areas for Model View Options - 600 px wide and any height 

 

My IN_FIELD elements display fine, but any text (UI_OUTFIELD) elements won't display - screengrab attached. The boundary rectangle displays the standard 444 x 266 limit - any text outside this won't show.

 

Have I got something wrong? Or is it a bug?

Solution found - if you specify the dimensions of the UI_OUTFIELD as well as the location then it works. Looks like they defaulted to 0 width and height if it's placed outside the standard working area.

@derekjackson I was asking a similar question last year. Not sure if it helps, but it might clarify things.
