I apologize, I most likely incorrectly told about the problem. It is impossible to guess whether the block is scrollable or not, in the constant chaos of the sources. It seems to me that it is necessary to use standard practices of displaying additional text.


  1. Don’t be afraid to break the boundaries of your page/view.

Mobile scrolling is natural — embrace it and double your whitespaces.

Indicate content overflow by cutting off grid tiles.
