Is there a way to align a field vertically in Crystal.  Right now the text in my field is aligning to the top of the field if the text doesn't fit the entire field.

    I am not aware of any method.  I know you can't in CR7 and 8.  Later versions may have added it but i don't think so.

    Agree.  Functionality doesn't exist in CR9 or 10 either.  I don't have XI but I haven't seen any docs to indicate it has changed.

    What if you check the box for "Can Grow" and then set your field size and row height for the one liners?  Does that work for you?

    That'll still align to the top of the field.
