Different sized text box for larger text on a report

Post

Hi,

 

I'm trying to create a report that prints out a list of comments made by survey takers. I have a text field which stores the comments, which vary from one word to several sentences in length. I created a report that displays all of the comments one after the other. However, when I try to print this report out on paper, some of the comments are cut off, and others leave whitespace after them because the comment box is a set width for every comment. Both of these problems could be solved if filemaker would resize the text box for each comment, but I can't find a way to do that. Is there any way to force filemaker to resize a text box in a report to fit the comment size?

 

I'm using filemaker pro 10 on windows xp.

 

Thanks,
