lost line when text field is break across pages in particular condition


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

wondows 7, windows vista

Description of the issue

Case: text field with slide up based on all objects above, inside the BODY with allow part to break across page boundaries.
When the text field has more than 1 line and the remain space in the page could fit only the first line of the field, the line is not printed, the field is break in the following page, a blank line is printed with the rest of the field. If the text field has just 1 line it is printed correctly.
i.e. text field contain 5 lines: if there is space just for one line in the page, there will be blank line in the page, a blank line in the following page and the printing starts from line 2 up to line 5. LINE 1 IS MISSED FROM PRINTING.
As in the attached image (export from an available text db ), in page there is not the line 1 of record 26 and the same in the top of following page. A blank line is printed instead (note the field space in the top of second page). Field borders in red.
The content of the text field is constructed like this:
     Record Number  - number of lines in the field - “line # “ line number
This problem seems not related to printers neither drivers because it was reproduced using no less than 7 different printers (real, virtual, pdf, standalone, networked).
It was not tested on any MacOs.

Steps to reproduce the problem

it is available a line test.fp7 db to reproduce the problem.
acts to have just 1 line space in the bottom of the page and the text field to be printed has more than 1 line.

Expected result

print all the lines in the text field

Actual result

missed the first line of the text field
