Adobe editable document not printing correctly
Have some editable Adobe documents (Child Friendly IEP's) that have scrollable text boxes on. If more txt is entered it just scrolls off the page, not a problem except it cannot be printed, only the visible text is printed. It apparently should print the page and any more text is printed on a continuing next page. We only ever get the first page. Anyone got any ideas what could be wrong?

Mmm my understanding was by default scrolling off, "wont" print. Unless you're using a font-size reducer, and/or multi-line, or using a more scripted method setup the boxes to resize based on input.
And found a quick post from adobe forum:
"For forms that will be primarily distributed through print, make sure you do not choose the Scroll Long Text option. Field content that scrolls will not be seen in the printed version of the form"

Thanks, had not seen the actual printing done by the teacher who said she could do two pages so she must have been mistaken. Thought it was a bit too fancy for a text box to decide if it needed a second page or not. I'll just tell them to fit it in the box, change the font size if they can or just rely on an electronic copy (which would be better and save lots of trees!)
