Sliding fields can be persnickety.
- They don't grow, only shrink so make them very large.
- All items in the same row or below must also be set to slide up if you need to see the part's enclosing space shrink.
- Sliding is not visible in browse mode
- Container fields that slide must have Top, left alignment selected in Format Graphic...
How do you expand them? I usually just oversize them and then turn on sliding
They can't, wish they did. That's why I said "make them very large". You have to size them large enough to hold the largest possible mass of characters that might somehow end up in that field. With some situations, that can be difficult to predict.
