R – Padding in NSTextView — possible without custom drawing


In Cocoa, NSTextView has a rather shallow margin between text and border. Is there a way to specify a padding (distance between text and border of view) for a NSTextView without resorting to owner drawing?

Best Solution

The NSTextView method setTextContainerInset: does what you're looking for. The height and width components of the NSSize parameter specify the vertical and horizontal padding amount respectively.
