    Default Can't Disable Allow Growth when Printing on Report

    I've searched and searched... perhaps it can't be done, but:

    I have a memo field on a report, and I don't want it to expand beyond the size I've created it.

    Under properties for the field, there's a checkbox next to "Allow Growth when Printing", but it's greyed-out (so I can't un-check it!). Can I disable this feature somehow?

    Thank you for any help you can provide!

    a calculated field that is equal to the memo field can be displayed and then the "Allow Growth when Printing" is enabled.
