Hi,

you need to allow page breaks for the text fields and their surrounding subforms.

Also, the page these text fields are located on needs to be set to flowed.

Thanks for the reply.

I have tried what you have suggested earlier.

I am attempting to exactly duplicate a form from our older system.

The problem is I have two separate text fields which are on the first page of the form which is static in size.

“2” text fields seems to be the important part here.

If there is not enough room on the 1st page the text boxes will flow to the 2nd page, then the 3rd, etc.

I can get it to work if there are only one text field, as the data seems to flow sequentially.

In other words the if 1st text field gets filled, you can either finish filling in on the 2nd page, or somewhere else on the 1st page, but once you have started filling overflow on the 2nd page for the 1st text field, the 2nd text field doesn’t look like it can fill in on the 1st page.

The lines show the direction of overflow from one page to the next.
