Accessible text function clarification

Jan 23, 2023

Hi all, 

Ever since switching on the accessible text function for our projects, which must all be accessible, I have not been able to clearly understand what to expect regarding when a scroll bar should appear and when the box should simply expand down or to the right. I assume that when you click the little box to turn it into an expanded box then no scroll bar would appear because it should expand. Here's an example of that not happening. (See pics) So I'm generally confused about what I'm supposed to do to stop all these little scroll bars appearing everywhere (which I don't want unless absolutely necessary).
Could someone really clearly explain (I've read the updates provided by Articulate but what they say doesn't reflect what I see) a best practice use of the accessibility text functionality and the tips and tricks to make it work efficiently and effectively?
