Controlling location of text field upon expansion onto additional page

Not applicable

Hi everyone,

I'm relatively new to LiveCycle and have had a fair amount of success creating forms, but I have run into an issue.  I have created an site-review form that has comment fields (text fields) which expand to accommodate the amount of notes take by the reviewer.  I have set it so that the fields expand and push the items below down and onto a second page as needed. 

The real issue occurs when the text filed expands onto the next page.  When the text field moves down, it changes it's Y axis location and subsequently throws the formatting of the form off.  I would like the text field to remain at Y: 4.25in. 

The file can be downloaded at:

I am currently running LiveCycle ES2 v9.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I've encountered this as well. The way I corrected it was to convert the subforms to tables. This will allow the row to stay together. I can send you an example if you send me your email address.
