    Sliding Left Causes Text Wrap and chops off bottom



      Sliding Left Causes Text Wrap and chops off bottom


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      Windows 7 Pro

      Description of the issue

      A block of text is set to Slide Left, Slide Up (all above), Not Reduce Size of Enclosing part.  The text block appears fine when viewed on-screen in either browse or preview mode.  When printed however the longest line of text has the last word wrapped onto the following line which shifts everything down and causes the last line of text to be chopped off.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      The font was Palatino TrueType which may be relevant.  I am only able to reproduce the problem in some circumstances so it may be related to the width of the characters on the line.

      Expected result

      The Printed version should be the same as the preview version

      Actual result

      Printed/PDF version has the last word of the longest line wrapped onto the next line and the last line of text is chopped off

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear


      Configuration information

      Palatino Truetype font


      Turning off sliding left solved the problem in this case because it was not actually required.  This would be a problem in other situations where left-sliding was required.
