Size of the edit display when working with multiline objects


Hello- I’ve noticed when you’re working with a data grid or a multi-line button that when you double click to edit, the edit display takes up a good portion of the screen. For instance, when I add a multi line button to the top of my mock up and double click on it, my entire screen is taken up by a blank edit display. Sometime you need to add content to the control based on other controls (such as a master/child display- where you’re adding a data grid of child information base on the master list). Is it possible to only show a few edit lines, and then grow the edit area as the user types? I find I have to take snapshots of my mock up WIP before I edit multi line or grid controls, as I cant see data already on the mock up. Thanks.
