Hello Christian,

When faced with a problem like this, I like to work up from the lowest
You are wanting to debug: TextMorph > PasteUpMorph > ScrollPane >

Work in Workspace or Inspector or Explorer, all of which allow execution of
arbitrary code.
Use the Protocol browser to see all of the methods available to the class
you are working on.
Create a test case by pulling items from the Objects flap. I pulled a
#Playfield and then dropped a #Text on it.
Open Explorers on both Objects.
Experiment with different methods in the text explorer code window, think
of words which describe the behavior you want to manipulate and use the
Protocol Browser to find some.

Let me know if this is helpful,
