    Unable to change layout width - Filemaker 10

    scoostraw

      I am a noob, so bear with me...

       

      I can't seem to be able to change the width of a layout.  I can change the height ok.  Shouldn't I be able to drag the light gray line to the right to widen the window?

          Unlike recent versions of FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Pro 10 does not have the ability to set a "real" layout width.  You specify the width of your layout by the layout objects you place on your layout - the farther to the right your layout objects go the wider you layout will be.

            Thanks for the reply Steve.

             

            What's happening for me is that I am portaling some fields from a related table into the layout.  These fields are being cut off (out of view) in the layout and I don't see a way to make it wider.
