    It would also be cool if the text box could auto-size to the content (in the case of an incoming dispatch field or workflow hand-off) and maximize the use of the screen's native resolution (on whichever platform it lands on)

    This isn't a direct solution to this request, but in the new releases (mobile versions 9.7+), you can now pop-out Long Text fields, which  makes them a bit easier to use. Here's what that looks like in iOS: 

    To get there, you click on the arrows in the upper right-hand corner of the field (pardon the questionable arrow):

    In GoCanvas for Android 9.7.0.7, the pop-out arrows appear but don't do anything other than move the cursor / focus to the text box?

    In GoCanvas for Windows 9.7.0.5, the pop-out arrows don't appear at all - but maybe that is a function of resolution?

    Hi Nate,

    Thanks for pointing out that behavior in Android - I confirmed it on one of our test devices so I'll pass this along to our development team. 

    It's not available on Windows as of yet. 

    Update: The Android functionality is a little different than on iOS. You have to enter enough text to make it activate. Once you've entered enough text, you can expand and collapse the field to fit the text. 

    Here's a quick video of it in action on Android: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1DgfbJixEh591KaLMhTL0-5tfuW1-ZwlH/view?usp=sharing.
