Welcome to this week’s From the Forum. In this post, we highlight a few Corona Community Forums posts that cover important topics.

Aligning text in a text field

The question asked in this thread is how to cause a native.newTextField to show the beginning of the string if the text entered was too long. Learn how to force the string back to the beginning.
