Description gdahefferman 2017-12-10 15:42:30 UTC
To save on resource, paper, it would be very desireable to have the feature 'Can Grow'/'Can Shrink' property added to the field properties especially with Text fields, thus enabling the full entered text within the database to be shown/printed on the Report, thus removing the Red Right Hand pointer which is the current indicator when the text quantity exceeds the allocated field space on the report.

Actual Results:  
Fully described with Description

Expected Results:
Considerable paper saving (obviously dependent on data output), Better report presentation, Page space used to maximum.  

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Looking forward to your thoughts/comments in due course: Thank you.

Isn't this a duplicate of bug 45789?

See https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=45789#c10 for a macro that sets the automatic row-height after the report-document has been created.
