In the old LiveCycle there was a tab next to the "object" tab named the "layout" tab, which allowed to make a text field expandable. (If someone types more than the box can hold, currently, I just get a plus sign and scroll bar and when printing, you can't see all the text).

In the new LiveCycle, I can't seem to find where the "layout" tab is or if they moved the "expand to fit" on the y axis option. All the videos on youtube just show the older version.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Alex

Which version of Livecycle do you have? I have ES4 and if you go to "Window" and then "Layout", the Expand to fit is there....?

Thank you very much. That worked! Only problem now is that I was using a converted .pdf. So while the text box expands, the box that outlines it does not. So I’ll have to recreate the form.

but with your help I can make the box expand.

thank you!
