I have two expandable fields on one page in an Adobde doc and want all of the text to print out (right now the text chops off)

OK to have text overflow onto a second page on the bottom field box

any help?

alo, I have Adobe 9

What version of designer and acrobat/reader are you using? I tried later versions (8 and 9) and it paged correctly when all the parent containers where set to flow, all page-break and the fields set to auto-fit. If i remember correctly there was a bug that a single growable text field could not span multiple pages. not sure if that was in 6 or 7.

I keep looking at

Forms > Add - Edit Fields

but cannot locate a control for setting the text to "flow"

the Properties just have

General / Appearance / Options / Actions / Format / Validate / Calculate

or for setting the Layout to Allow Multiple Lines

Ah ok, you are probably not in the right forum then. This one is for XFA-based forms built with Designer (accessed through Forms->Start Form Wizard, Create a PDF Form from scratch) and not the in-built Acrobat Form->Add Or Edit Fields. I dont think the in-built fields have the funtionality you are looking for but you can ask in http://forums.adobe.com/community/acrobat/forms
