    Printing from a text box that scrolled out of view (2003)

    I several text boxes that are set to certain sizes for asthetic
    purposes, when the user types text that surpasses the visible limit, a
    scroll bar appears and the text disappears from sight unless the
    scroll bars are used. The problem is, once the document has been
    completed, I want to print a copy with all the text that has been
    inputted into the text boxes, obviously not just what is visible when
    viewing the document in Word. Is there a way to make the text boxes
    expand to encompass all text written, or another fix?

    Welcome to Woody's Lounge!

    You could select a text box, then select Format | Text Box, activate the Text Box tab and tick the check box labeled 'Resize AutoShape to fit text'. This will disturb the layout of the document, though. I don't think there is a way to keep the fixed size of the text boxes and yet print all text. Another limitation is that a text box cannot become larger than a page.

    You might consider using tables - table cells can expand to multiple pages, if needed.

    PS You don't have to break lines in a post manually, the browser will take care of that. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
