Some other database applications allow you to set a property so that a field can "grow" and/or "shrink". In Filemaker we can set it to "shrink" when the field is previewed or printed, but we can't set it to "grow" and the change is not visible in Browse mode. :smileysad:
The best you can do that I am aware of, is to make your text field large enough to display all the text of even an extensive entry, then use Format | Set Sliding/Printing to set the field to "slide up" and "also reduce the size of the enclosing part". Since this often creates a layout that is awkward for data entry, you may have to create two layouts, one for data entry, with an averaged sized text field and one for printing, with an extremely large text field that "slides up".
Thanks a lot. it worked.
