It seems all my text boxes i have start the text in the center of the box vertically, then spaces it out as you type more. is there a way to make it start at the top of the box and work down, just as if you were typing in Word or Notepad. if someone only types a few lines, it looks kinda odd having the text in the middle of the box with all that white space above and below it.
You have the option to change the way the text should appear in the Paragraph section. Select the TextBox control and choose the menu Window -> Paragraph.
Attached screen shot for your reference..
You can set the vertical alignment of the caption and value (and both) for an object in the Paragraph tab - works just like Word.
Thanks to you both! I didn't even know that paragraph window existed until now. Alll I kept seeing in my panel off to the side was the Object and Layout tab
