Chapter 15. Printing > Removing unwanted space

Removing unwanted space

Data varies: some runs long, some short (Figure 15.8). To eliminate wasted field space, create a neater printout—and keep Al and Beauregard happy—you want to use a feature FileMaker calls "sliding." With this feature, FileMaker automatically closes up unused space either to the left or above any fields you select. The great thing about sliding is that FileMaker only applies it when necessary. If you have a field with a long text entry, it gets the room it needs.

Figure 15.8. The problem with fixed field size printouts: Giving Beauregard enough room makes Al space out.
