Read-only editor does not support multiple lines.

Attempt to create a read-only editor using a custom renderer for Android.

Please provide a repro project and a better description of the issue.

I wasn't able to see the bug in your video.

The home view has 4 regions to select a clip from.
Each region contains an editor that is set to read-only.
Regardless of the number of multiple lines of text that the editor loads, it only renders the data on one line.

The video shows multiple lines of data being applied when the editor is NOT read-only. However, when it is in read-only mode, it doesn't render multiple lines of text.

Any updates on this?

Have you attempted to create a simple read-only editor for Android?
Did you observe the anomaly?
I provided a GitHub URL. However, I have not heard anything back.

I'm not able to reproduce this behavior. If it's still occurring, please provide a smallest possible project that demonstrates the issue.
