      Line 1 : RepeatedField[1], simple height, for ex. 22 points
      Line 2 : Standard Field, double height, for ex. 44 points
      Line 3 : RepeatedField[2], simple height, for ex. 22 points
      For all theses objects, define the sliding up option based "on only object directly above".
      In Browse mode, enter a record without data and then switch to Preview mode.
