      how can I make the top field in the Body shink if it can't slide?

      Post

      I have a large  multiline text field at the top of the Body part.  It is set to slide and shrink.  According to the Help reports, an object won't slide unless the objects above it slide. And it won't shrink unless it also slides.  But if this text field is at the top of the Body Part it can't slide and therefore it can't shrink.  But many of my reports contain only a few  or no lines of text in this field so they leave a lot of space in preview mode because of these rules.  I hope there is a way out of this.
