will correct this.

Thanks - I read too much into the name #contentsWrapped and didn't look at the comments.  #contents
forwards to #contentsAsIs which disables autolayout.  #contentsWrapped allows auto layout.

Do you have any pointers on where to start exploring the layout code?

problem before. TextMorphs seem to think they >have an unlimited width and thus the first one on the
line will answer true to #containsPoint: and the second one never sees it. My change is:


>containsPoint: aPoint

>(super containsPoint: aPoint) ifFalse: [^false].
>self startingIndex > text size ifTrue:
>["make null text frame visible"
>^ super containsPoint: aPoint].
>^ self paragraph containsPoint: aPoint

Have you submitted this change to Squeak Central for inclusion in 2.3?
