    I posted about this issue a few months ago and got no response, so I'm raising the issue again.

    The return keys and cursor keys in GUI.TextArea do not work in OSX builds. This means that its impossible to use GUI.TextArea for multiline text fields.

    This bug hasn't had any attention for a year, and I'm now in a tricky situation when it comes to supporting our game. We have tens of thousands of daily users, and because the issue has not had any attention in the last year we're still stuck developing the game in Unity 4. Our IAP plugin (unibill) is now deprecated and so I'm left with two possible options:

    1. Stay with Unity 4 and lose support for IAPs in our game.
    2. Switch to Unity 5 and lose the ability for players to communicate with one another.

    Will someone please, please at least look at this issue and confirm that it is a genuine bug? :(
