I have an invoice database that I suddenly need a lot more portals lines for printing. I can add the rows to the portal until it covers two page breaks but the print out (pdf or hardcopy) only has one page to it and shows only half the portal.

help? Am I missing somethign obvious? FMP7 and OSXTiger

Portal are not made for printing at all, they are a display measure only. You need to make a layout in the table belonging to the portal rows, in the new layout can you then pull in relevant fields from the parent record.

... With invoicing, you really shouldn't rely on portals -- you should be able to report using what is effectively a list view from the perspective of your related data (i.e. a layout based on the invoice items rather than the client side of the relationship)
