Input Text help

Hi all,

I’ve placed an input text box over an image of some lined paper, and would like to set a limit for the number of lines that can be typed, as I would like to avoid the text scrolling (I tried the maximum characters option, but it doesn’t count spaces, perhaps there is a way to make a space count as a character?).

After the user goes beyond this line limit, it would auto-tab to another piece of paper, the auto-tab code’s not a biggie, I can code the setFocus, but I’m really struggling to work out how to set a limit on the amount of lines, and the subsequent event that would trigger the auto-tab.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
