Layout issues...


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version


Description of the issue

Background - I'm doing a pricelist, all the normal elements are there, Product code, Product Name, price and so on - what I also wanted to do was to add a description with each prodcut, this is a field that I have placed underneath the Product name - as this is price list, the description will vary in length, so I have included approx. 20 lines of text (the depth of the text box) I have then ensured that the text box is set to - slide up and resize and enclosing part.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Just follow the above steps...

Expected result

What I would like it to show (in preview) is a flowing document with no white spaces at the bottom of (some) pages...

Actual result

You will end up with 'gaps' of white on some pages... don't know why, as it seems rather random...

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No error, just an ugly looking price list...

I have uploaded and image showing my layout as well as three page - the red circles indicate the white gap...

I've used FM for more than 15years, but never mastered this... HELP!

Configuration information

See decsription


The only workaround that I have found is to reduce the depth of the Product description, but this is actually what I want..
