FM does not allow to expand field sizes, you can only shrink them.
So make it big enough to welcome the biggest case you have to deal with, and set it to shrink, using:
- format / set sliding/printing/slide up based on... + also reduce the size...
Hint: to avoid the last line of a page to be cut half way down, use a <<merge field>> instead of a normal one if the user does not need to type in this field.
