    Printing merge field data of variable length

    sisterme

      Hi,

       

      I've got a receipt layout that I've been using for a long time, which includes merge fields for all of our products.  Only the products actually purchased appear on the receipt for a given order.  Sometimes only product is purchased and so the receipt can be very compact in size, taking up only 1/3 of a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper.  I had the layout set to a small size so that it would print 2 receipts per page when that was possible.

       

      However, we've recently expanded our product offerings extensively.  This means that the text box with the merge fields extends "off" the page in the Layout Mode, although very often the actual receipts will still be quite short in length.  Is there anyway I can make the layout flexible to the actual data so that it doesn't use a full sheet of paper for short receipts?  Right now it's forcing me to accommodate the length of the text box.

       

      Thanks!
