Description Cmj2405 2011-10-30 14:17:46 UTC
Created attachment 52927 [details]
printed PDF showing the text box, with the overflowing text cut off

When printing a form in base, if a scrollable text box is created and filled with text that is long enough to require scrollbars, the overflowing text cannot be displayed at all when printing. Base just prints the text box as it appears on screen, that is, the text box with scroll bars, and the overflowing text hidden.

Steps to reproduce:
1. create a form in base with a scrollable text box
2. insert text into the text box 
3. Print the form

Current behavior:
Base prints the text box as it appears on screen, overflowing text isn't show at all
Expected behavior:
It should be possible for the box to accomodate all the text automatically when printing

Thanks for bugreport
As I understand, we need something like option "Autofit" for form or text field or printing dialog. It is functionality request therefore.
