I have a field on a report which is a text field set to Can Grow = Yes.  But the report is cutting off on the right hand side like the attached screen shot shows.  Is there a fix for this?

See screen shot.Example of cut off text

a quick fix for that, without resizing your textbox horizontally is
to fix the images name, remove spaces and keep length of image name consistent

I'm not sure I know what you mean by "Fix the images name".

I manually removed the spaces in the table field and got the same result.

I can't keep the image name length consistent.  They have to vary.

I just discovered that if I remove any spaces in the file names, for example, "Love Seat.jpg" renamed to "LoveSeat.jpg", (no spaces in the name), it works fine.

But I don't understand why that would fix it.

And I wish there was a way to leave the spaces in the name but have the report print correctly.

that is the normal textbox  wrap text behavior, when the line of text cannot be fitted horizontally, it will split the text on the first space it finds and place the trailing text to the next line.

I understand that and I'm ok with that.  But what is happening is it is cutting off a letter...see the example screen shot.  The "e" in the work Love is only half there.
