Hello,

I'm trying to create a product catalog for my tea company. The catalog is a vertical list of each product with a name, description and price. Some of the descriptions are very long, some are very short. I've had to make the Body Part in the layout very long as well as the description field, and this is resulting in a lot of dead space.

Is there a way to get the height of the record to adjust based on the amount of data in it?

Thanks!

Not for on-screen display (except preview mode), but I assume you really want this for printing.

Just apply the sliding/printing options to your description field in layout mode, and be sure to select the option to reduce the size of the enclosing part.
