      Suppress blank print lines?

      Post

           If the fields on a list line are blank, is there a way to suppress printing?

               See the "Sliding and VIsibility" section on the Position tab of the Inspector.

                 I saw that, but didn't make sense in this context.

                 Still doesn't, but I'll play with it some more.

                 Terminology is the problem: "slide" does not seem to relate to suppress a blank line.

                 I don't want fields to move anywhere...

                  

                 Thank you!

                   What is a "line" in your print layout? If each "line" is a record, perhaps you just need to omit that record from your current found set.

                   Key facts about sliding layout objects:

                     
              1.           It's only visible in preview mode and when you print/save as PDF...
              2.      
              3.           Sliding fields will shrink but not expand.
              4.      
              5.           All layout objects below and in the same layout part as the slide/resize field need to also be set to slide up and resize.
              6.      
              7.           Objects in headers and footers will not slide.
              8.      
              9.           Portals will shrink/slide to fit the number of rows of records, but fields within the portal row will not shrink/slide.
              10.      
              11.           Fields will slide up only if Top alignment is specified for it and will slide left only if Left alignment is specified.
              12.      
              13.           Consistent side borders are difficult to achieve with sliding fields.
