I have a ScrollView object in my project. It is set to Clamped.

Inside the ViewPort, I have Content and what I actually want to scroll, a TextViewMesh. The Content has a Content Size Fitter, with its Vertical fit set to Preferred Size.

The problem is, when I run it, and try to scroll, it does not scroll at all, in ScrollView to the current setting. If I set the ScrollView mode to Unrestricted, it scrolls to the infinity. What I am doing wrong? How can I set my ScrollView to scroll the text (which can vary in lenght)?



Your screenshot shows that Viewport has two children, Content and Description. You stated that Content has a ContentSizeFitter component. If your text is on the Description object, the ContentSizeFitter is not going to adjust its size for the text because Description is not a child of Content.

You may need to move Description to be a child of Content, and add a VerticalLayoutGroup component to Content.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Already tried that, and didn't work. Desctiption is not an object containing the text object, it IS the text object. \$\endgroup\$ – Fustigador Aug 27 at 7:35
  • \$\begingroup\$ Then you need to make Description a child of Content. The content size fitter on Content will not work if Description is not a child of Content. You may also need to add a VerticalLayoutGroup to Content after moving Description \$\endgroup\$ – Kevin Aug 27 at 16:46
  • \$\begingroup\$ I fixed it. Deleted Content, and now there is only Description, with its ContentSizeFitter. I didn't need the VerticalLayoutGroup, however, probably because there is only one element. Your answer put me in the right track. Thank you! \$\endgroup\$ – Fustigador Aug 28 at 8:00
