Limit text box from growing

I have a simple text field on a layout that I want users to be able to type into, but I want to control how many lines they can write. I don't want them to be able to press return many times as that would make the text box too big on the printing layout. Is there a way to control this? I do see that I can control how many characters can go in a field, but that's not exactly what I'm thinking. Thanks.

First of all, you can do this by limiting the number of characters allowed in the field by the Options for the field. Select the Field in Define Fields, Options >> Validations >> Number of characters.

It will have to be tinkered with to get Approximately the number of words and lines you want.

This Topic has come up in the past. IMHO, I do not like this approach, I would rather use a field and scroll bars to limit the size of the field layout, and print out the data from a Print Layout. You could then use Slide/Printing Function for printing the data.
