Textarea fields in candidate application page are displayed in a continuous, unformatted paragraph with no scroll bar.
SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management
It is expected behaviour that the text area field appears formatted for users with write access, but if the user has read access then its appearing as a single unformatted paragraph.
There is no scroll bar when you have a textarea in read only. There will be a scroll bar when it is permissioned as write.
