Another portal text wrap question


Is there a way to get text to wrap inside a portal? I need a field to go to the next row if it will not all fit on the current row - like pressing Return in data entry.


I know the answer is usually to redesign the database to show the records without portals, but I don't think that is possible. I need to print a 5x7 card with lots of contact information, including family members on the right side of the card. There is no chance that the portal will outgrow the card, so I do not have to worry about that. If I don't use a portal, it seems I would have to dedicate a line to each family member, which the structure doesn't support (easily or based on the criteria I have to use) and I cannot give up that much space on the card. It helps to simply list them beside the household's contact information.


If there is another way to look at this, I would love to hear some ideas. But, I would also like to know if there is a clear answer to text-wrap in portals.


Thanks for all the help I always get on this forum!
