Clipping individual children of GuiObject instead of all

GuiObject.ClipsDescendants

With the current state of Roblox Studio it is impossible / very hard to make great UIs.

Sometimes I need to use ClipsDescendants on each individual GuiObject but can not.

This could be a property on the GuiObject itself, something like GuiObject.Clip

FYI renamed title a bit for clarity (focus on problems rather than API suggestions), also you should add some examples!

before I explain the situation and use case please inspect the UI setup and each image beloew

image


Frame.ClipsDescendants = false
ScrollingFrame.ClipsDescendants = false


Frame.ClipsDescendants = true
ScrollingFrame.ClipsDescendants = false


Frame.ClipsDescendants = true
ScrollingFrame.ClipsDescendants = true


To simple put it I want TextHolder to not be clipped by Frame but I want ScrollingFrame and it’s Descendants to be clipped.

This is currently impossible and I can’t make the UI look good at all
