I've created a list view layout for printing that has a header, sub summary, and body parts. Am I correct that there isn't a way for the body part to be of variable size/ height based on the data in the fields placed there?
You can do it, just make sure that all objects in the body section have "slide up" checked, and "also reduce size of part" checked.
This is under printing/sliding settings in the first tab of the inspector.
To add to that "sliding" shrinks fields, it doesn't expand them so you need to pick a very large size for any fields that store variable amounts of data.
Also, you need to set all objects, graphic objects, field labels, etc to slide up and resize, not just the fields with variable data or you won't see your layout part shrink to a smaller size.
Duh!! I had "slide up" checked but had failed to check "reduce size of part"
