I think there may be a problem with the clip area when translating the position of a container of a Label. If I use something like:
the label translates correctly, but the clip does not update so that the label truncates or disappears completely if the translation is beyond the width of the label.
I'm a relative newbie to Cascades, so I'm wondering if this is a real bug or if I'm missing some extra step?
The problem existed in Beta 3, and is still there on Beta 4. In both cases I'm testing using the Dev Alpha B with versions 388 and 1103 of the firmware.

I have a workaround for now: I'm padding out strings with spaces to widen the clipping area (all my X translations are positive). But it's a horrible thing to be doing: what happens if my text is shorter in another language?
Since I haven't had any feedback, I'm assuming that it really is a bug rather than me doing somethign wrong, so I'll go raise an issue. It just seemed so unlikely to be a bug, basic testing of the feature during development should have caught it (translate label to right and see if it's in the correct place and visible). It's not a subtle bug.
