Auto fit text boxes do not save correctly....


Level 2


I have a form where I have a text box on a positioned page that is set up in the following way

- allow multiple lines - object>field options

- expand to fit - Layout options.

- I do have a height specified as a default.

- this.maxH - ""; - is scripted to shrink the box to the smallest size possible based on the text value.

- this is a dynamic form

It works as designed when test the PDF in reader or acrobat.  I have enabled user rights to save the document in acrobat.

The problem is that when I add some text to the textbox, save the document, then reopen it - it collapses the text to one line and shifts the position up.  I have wrapped this in subfrom and set it to flowed, but that made no chance.  I wonder if there is a conflict with the this.maxH script and auto height.

Any ideas - thanks in advance to any all help.

Kindly share following details to exactly trace problem:

1: At what event you have written the script ?

2: Is there any condition before the script this.maxH - "" ?

Probably problem is your script, if there is no condition and it is called at form reopening.

Hi aks@lc

It is at the exit event.  There is no condition statement.
