I have a text field within a table cell that is cutting off the data when there is a large amount.  Is there a limit on a text field when it is placed in a table cell?

Thank you,

Donna Lively

How does the result look like with your filled text field and what settings are you actually using for it?

I have the same Problem and i considered everything, which was mentioned by jsanborn58.
Nevertheless the text is cut off, the last 4 characters are missing; there is a line break in the cell because of the multiple line, but only two lines seems to be used

You can have a table cell grow dynamically, just like a text field. Select the cell and check "Expand to fit" for Height in the Layout tab.

In the Object tab, you can check "Allow Multiple Lines". Also, check to see if there is a value for Max Chars next to "Limit Length". Uncheck "Limit Length"  if you want.

There are also some options under the Paragraph tab for dealing with indents and spacing when the text wraps to another line.
