How do I program Adobe LiveCycle form to have text boxes expand when printing or export to different format for printing long answers?

I've created a fillable PDF for project management and when I print it out the boxes only show the amount of space on the form. I'd like to be able to print and have the form expand to show all text in the box, or export into another format that will print the whole form with all text nicely. Have tried the export function and nothing will come up as a different format -- all the data gets lost. Can't figure out how to program the boxes so they can expand for printing. Attached the original fillable form. See boxes page 2-3 that always get overflowed.
Thanks! CRREL-Primary-PMP-final-22Jan.pdf

Links were helpful but not specific so had to figure out how they related to adobe livecycle and my specific type of expandable text box (related to adobe in general). THanks!!!
