As seen in print protein 2.3, textboxes can be used to present tabular data which the user can transfer to a spreadsheet via copy-and-paste.

Having two textboxes in a single Foldit dialog presents a problem. In print protein 2.3, the first newline-delimited text box became read-only, meaning it could not be copied, and would not accept keyboard input. (Keyboard input is not the goal in this case, however.)

The recipe dialog_test shows this issue in its simplest form. The first textbox contains a single newline, and no visible text. When the second box contains four newlines, the first textbox shows the "read-only" behavior. When the second box is reduced to three newlines, both textboxes accept keyboard input and can be copied normally.
