Home › Forums › CSS › Positioning outside of overflow scroll
I would like to have an arrow appear before some text BUT the arrow needs to appear outside the div. Using position:absolute is fine until I add the needed overflow-y:scroll –
I rather not use padding-left on the div.
Do you expect the arrow to scroll with the text?
Pretty sure it can’t do that if you’re restricting overflow.
Yes I do expect the arrow to scroll with the text.
Not going to happen with CSS, I suspect….given that overflow restriction is a requirement.
Perhaps a JS solution but I’m not seeing, TBH, the point.
Surely a better “Look At This” option exists?
I’d be interested in understanding what this is for to further my understanding.
There are other design options but this is the design the client wants and I didn’t want to say it wasn’t possible yet.
I have gone against my word and have used padding-left:20px with margin-left:-20px to get what I wanted, I have updated the pen.
