How to make an edit box automatically adjust its height ?

Post

I have text field which can contain anything from zero to over one thousand words. When I use a regular edit box to view that field, the resulting layout is very ugly because the height of the edit box never fits the text: records with little text get too much insightly blank space, while verbose records cannot display all their text.

I remember that in Access, I could set an auto-height option to an edit box so that I shrink or grow according to its contents. Is something similar available with Filemaker? Having a table made almost exclusively with text fields, I would love to have a layout enabling me to read it continuously, like a book, with no big gap between parts...

Any solution or best-practice workaround would be very welcome. W.
