    Default Allow growth when printing - doesn't

    Anybody else seen this or do I have to do more troubleshooting on my report?

    I have an RTF object on my task report that has nothing but a field in it. (The field is the "status" field which could be anything from empty to 3-4 paragraphs.)

    When this RTF object is in the Page Header, it will not grow when printing. It only displays the amount of text that will fit in the original height of the RTF object. However, if I define it to also allow "shrink when printing" it will ALWAYS shrink to nothing.

    When this same RTF object is simply moved to the Detail section, it grows as it should. Of course, this means I get multiple copies of the status field on each report since there is usually more than one action item per task.

    Cal,

    Try setting a group and putting it in the group header. Maybe that will work.

    I tried that right after posting the original message and it works BUT why shouldn't it work in the page header? Is this a bug or is there a good reason for it?
