In the details section of my Crystal Report, I arrange the fields in horizontal line, not column, it looks like this
And I enable the 'Can Grow' property, the problem is, for example, Field2 grows to 3 lines, then the Field3 jam together with text in Field2, how do I fix that? thanks for help

The only way to fix that is to use separate sections for fields that can grow.

Right click the left margin of the section
Move field3 and 4 down.

Repeat if you have other fields that can grow.

The basic idea is to make a field that can grow as the last field vertically in a section

You can also concatenate all 4 fields by adding a Formula Field.

Add a new formula field.  In the formula editor that pops up, edit the formula.  I've found using Basic Syntax easier than Crystal Syntax. The formula would look something like this:
formula = {tblTableName;1.Field1} & " " & {tblTableName;1.Field2} & " " & etc...
