Expandable text field not breaking across multiple pages

past-tense

Hey everyone,

I've got a multi-line, expandable text field that will have many pages of content. My issu is that it won't break across pages. It's not the first thing on the page, and when it's big enough, instead of splitting to a new page, it moves the entire text field to the top of the next page. Not only that, but if it has more than one page of content, the text field expands over the page footer (from the master page...) and disappears off the end of the page, without adding more pages to show the rest of the content.

I've checked the usual suspects:

- The text field is set to allow page breaks within content

- All parent subforms of the text field allows page breaks within content

- There are no 'keep withs' set.

- The form is definitely saved as a dynamic pdf.

Any ideas on where I might have gone wrong? Thanks for any help that you might be able to offer,

- Scott

Hi,

are the surrounding subforms set to flowable?

The text field doesn't break in a positioned layout.

Hi radzmar,

I checked the parent subform, which was fine, but I had accidentally left one of the grandparents as positioned. Fixed it and it's working great now.

Thanks for the quick response... I've been getting a headache over this for the better part of a day.
