welcome to the forum.
I'm not going to answer your question...there...I may have just saved you some reading...but try it just in case if you care to.
I'm curious about two things:
1. If there is an 'extender' that someone more knowing than I will answer with. I'll watch for the post along with you...
2. Why you wouldn't split your entry page into multiple, screen sized layouts and just have one (or two, or three) print layouts. In some of my field-heavy Dbases, I'll split off data families (hospital info, lawyer info, accountant info, partner info) with hot buttons that perform "gotolayout". The other layout has many other fields on that topic and a hotbutton to go back. You could do something similar with the tab feature (it's on FMP8, I assume it's on 8.5 academic). Your print layouts could be 111" long with sliding set.
When you go to print, the print button would run a script of the type:
And now you've just doubled your effective layout size.
And if someone else knows how to extend past 111", you can ignore this post altogether...
Hope this helps!
The specs do not lie. Couldn't you divide the information into smaller chunks in related records?
Thanks! Yes, I will be dividing the layout into two separate (smaller) layouts. It was never intended to get this large, but simply happened as more tests were added and new information was deemed essential.
I really appreciate the quick and helpful answer!
