Variable height with side borders

This is a problem for FileMaker 11.

 

I have a client who has a number of layouts that are used for PDF-ing forms to be emailed to clients. Their current layout is designed for a single-page look, but they are having trouble fitting everything on one page in every case. The data can be divided up into sections to allow splitting across multiple pages. However, their current layout design involves a frame around the entire page.

 

They would like to retain this design if possible, but I am scratching my head as to how to make this layout flexible in height. If I use multiple parts with separate chunks of data in each chunk, then I would set these parts to "reduce size of enclosing part" in the sliding settings and have the side borders to match. However, this would result in blank sections with no side borders.

 

Is my only option to convince them to design a page without side borders? Are there tricks I don't know about?

 

Cheers,
Rob
