Mysterious Growing Lists

For some reason, when I open up a project, sometimes a list display will be larger than when I last opened the project. This can interfere with being able to see the rest of the project and I will have to go into the project and shrink the list again. Does anyone know why this happens?

One reason may be that if you are running in the editor then the project will autosave. If it saves when something has been added to the list then the list will contain the new values next time you run or open the project.

Maybe Eliza can help you decide?

I don't mean that more items are added to the list, I mean that the box which the list is displayed in gets bigger.

If want a list to maintain its position and size then you need to save the project with the list showing.

Still working. Forgot to say the lists mustn't be empty when saved either to maintain size/position.

FINALLY SOMEONE ELSE NOTICED!

When the scratch team fixed the issue with the variables reseting their position, the lists were left unchanged. Lists still move on their own, and they also grow in size slightly every time you open the project.

No I don't make projects anymore. I left some time ago.
I only check the forums every now and then, but other than that consider me retired.
