Switching from Browse to Preview cuts the text off on the right (and reflows the text)

Post

     Looks fine in Layout. Looks fine in Browse. But when I switch to Preview to eliminate blank vertical space, my text is cut off on the right side. 

      

     Using FM Pro13 Advanced on a Windows 7 laptop.  The field is set to slide up and shrink the enclosing part (which works fine.)  Font is Arial 8 point.  Helvetica cuts off like this too.  Other fonts (Courier New, Tahoma, Times New Roman) don't cut off, but they reflow differently-- words move to lower lines in Preview.  Verdana is the only font I found where both versions are identical.

     I tried with larger fonts, and they don't cut off straight like this. But even Arial 9 point moves the last word of the first line down to the next line, etc.

      

     Why aren't they the same? Box doesn't change in size, text content doesn't change, etc.
