Change form's size from 8.5inx14 to 8.5X11

Avatar

Level 4

I was almost done with the 5 pages form, when my client requested to be changed in size; from 8.5in x 14in to 8.5in X 11in. What would be the easiest way to accomplish it? Do I have to resize everything on the form to fit in the requested size or there is some other way to accomplish it?

Thank you.

In that case, I would recommend that you reduce the widths of the subforms, before you reduce the width of the Master page.

Hi,

I think the easiest way would the following:

  1. Temporarily being objects from the very bottom of the form upwards.
  2. Go to the Master Page and adjest the page size.
  3. Go back to the Design pages and adjust the content to suit the new page size.

Hope that helps,

Hi Niall,

Sorry, I do not understand #1...Can you please explain?

Hi,

Because you want to make the form shorted in height, I am kust suggesting that you move the objects at the bottom of the form up at least 3 inches. This means that when you reduce the physical height of the page, you will still be able to see the objects and can reorganise their position on the new page size.

If you already have a flowed layout, then you wont need to do this, becuase the content will automatically move as you reduce the height.

Does that make sense?

I need to make the form shorted in width not height. It is now in Height 8.5 and Width 14. I need to make it Height 8.5 and Width 11. I already have MainForm as Flowed.

Thank you Niall.
