FM - Is there a way for a GL Portal to Resize Itself

I have an Income portal and Expense portal in a form layout.  I want to be able to use this layout to print, but the number of records in each portal varies with each main layout record.  Is there a way to make portals resize to fit only the number of portal records they show, or to do so when printing?  If not, what is the workaround?  Thank you.

In general, the best way to print records from a portal so that it takes up only the space required for those records is to create a report layout based on the related records  table, which in this case would be your GL table.

Create a script that goes to the report layout, performs a Find for the desired records and then sorts them. You can use a Sub-summary part or sort by Type - Income or Expense - to get them grouped how you want and with an appropriate heading. You could also to a Go to Related Record (GTRR) if you have a relationship between the Main records and ALL related GL records (in addition to the Income and Expense relationships) but it's basically the same as performing the Find and I wouldn't create another relationship just for that if you don't already have one. Just do:

Set Variable [ $MainRecordID ; Main::MainRecordID ]
Go To Layout [ GL Report Layout ]
Enter Find Mode [ ]
Set Field [ GL::MainRecordID ; $MainRecordID ]
Perform Find [ ]
Sort Records [ Restore ]
Page Setup [ Restore ]
Enter Preview Mode [ Pause ]
Print [ ]
Go to Layout [ Original ]
