Something in your print set up or your layout's design is the likely cause here.
What parts (such as Header, Body, Footer, Subsummary) are defined for the layout you are printing?
When you look at this layout in layout mode, do you see a horizontal line across your page?
An pardon the obvious, but did you check the page size and orientation in print setup before you printed?
Thanks, Phil. I started with a blank layout and am using only the body. No header or footer. I do not see a horizontal line across the page.
I don't think it is the printer set up (although I could certainly be wrong). When I export the found set (of 24 records) as a .pdf it ends up as 24 separate pages.
Thanks for the reply. I hope I answered the questions and look forward to your reply.
Are you on form view? You should go to a layout catered to list view.
Make sure that there is no blank white space in the bottom of your layout's body. In layout mode, you can drag the bottom edge of the body up until it reaches the bottom of the lowest object on your layout.
Also while in layout mode: Double click the "body" part label to bring up its part setup dialog. Make sure that "Page break before each occurrence" and "Page break after every [ ] occurrence" options are not selected.
Phil, I think you have me on the right track but I'm not there yet. My merged fields on the edit layout page only take up about two lines. But if I close the bottom edge of the body up to the bottom of them my records don't have nearly enough room to be displayed. Only a couple of lines show up and the rest is cut off.
I can close the bottom edge on the layout page up to the bottom of my longest listing but then that leaves an unacceptable space beneath the shorter listings.
Also, I have made the font size smaller and this is allowing more records to be printed per page but I still have a large gap between the shorter listings.
Thanks, mr_vodka. I am in list view but I just can't get the records close together when they print. Too much space between them. I'm working on the layout but am not there yet.
Have you turned on sliding?
In Layout Mode select the objects.
Format Menu --> Set Sliding
I'm assuming your merged text forms a single block of layout text here...
Select it while in layout mode and choose sliding/printing from the format menu to set it to "slide up", "also reduce size of enclosing part".
The change is only visible in preview mode or when you print it. If you have any objects next to or below this block of text, select it and choose the same options for them as well.
Bingo! Thanks, mr_vodka!
That did the trick. Thanks, Phil and mr_vodka.
