Description of the issue

We are able to see our full text in each field in Preview mode. But when the information is sent to a printer or to a PDF it changes and information is cropped.

We have checked: that our fields are large enough for the text, that they slide based on item above to save space. We have tested size of field, spacing between fields, size font, bold etc, but cannot eliminate the problem.

It seems like text that in preview mode may come very close to the field edge is not transitioned to the next line when printed or converted to PDF, but just cut off.

I've created both a screen shot of preview mode and a screen shot of the converted PDF, but can only figure out how to attach one to this report. I will attach the cropped info, but am happy to send the Preview screen shot when contacted.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Not sure.

Workaround

None yet.
