    Blank Space from Text to Field Edge

    flamecoder

      Is there a way to remove the extra space around the text field edge so I can place the field into a portal row without the portal row height so big? When trying to adjust the text field it will only go so small in heights. I want the text to be closer to the field edge.Border Space.png

       

      The way it is I can't make the field border height smaller. Overall I want to make the portal row thinner. Type size is 9 pts.

          Sounds like you are looking to adjust the "field padding" for a field. 

           

          You can adjust the padding for a field by highlighting it in Layout mode and then accessing the Appearance tab on the Inspector and looking at the "Advanced Graphic" section.

            FileMaker 12 doesn't have the "Advanced Graphic" section... No "Field Padding" option.
