How to print all lines on multilined text fields

Not applicable
Hi, we've got a form with several Text fields which are multilined. When printing this form we'd like to get the full text field printed not only the lines that fit on its width. That's crucial to allow someone to review the form on paper, as they can't see all the lines on the longest text fields as the width is not enough.

Any input appreciated.

Hi Esteve,

If your form is dynamic and you set the textfield's expand to fit options, after text written to those fields, filds will expand so it can also be seen in print.

You can also set expand to fit options before print by script.

But it is a good way to show the same that is written with printed.

Hope it helps,

Thanks Asiye, my form is dynamic but I can't see the expand to fit options you mentioned. I have only set allow multiple lines, are there other options?

Hi Esteve,

In the Layout tab, Size&Position, under the width and height "Expand to Fit" options can be selected.

Can you see it?

Oh yes, I'm so sorry.

It worked nicely, but the fields underneath get overwritten when the size of the textfield get big enough.

To avoid the overwritting shoud I wrap all the underneath fields on a flowed subform?

Thank again Asiye.

Yes, your subforms must be in flowed layout.
