Hi All,
there is the possibility to lock the height of a table's row to avoid that this stretching in the presence of a text too big?
I have setted the height in inches but when i export in pdf (or ppt) this expands based on text...
Thanks in advance

Are you using a fixed layout? If so, can you create a sample showing your issue that I can run? Thanks.

Hi Michael,
I do not know how to use the fixed layout, but I have attached 2 example with 2 different layouts that have the same problem even if in different ways:
1) report_A: pdf there are no bottom borders, ppt writes over
2) report_B: row spread out
Considering that the layout of these reports have already been approved, there is a way (an attribute) to set the maximum height and not allow the lines to spread and do not allow to write over?
Thanks in advance

In report B, if you set the report to fixed layout vs the auto layout it's currently in, the text seems to be cut off correctly.

Setting heights for the containing grids in report A allows the border to be shown. I cannot test for ppt because I have PowerPoint 2010.

Hi Michael,
how can i set a fixed layout?
I change a LayoutPreference in advanced section of a report, but doesn't work.

A fixed layout can be set in the general section of the property editor. If you click on the report in a blank spot or select the report design in the outline view, then go to the property editor's general section and scroll to the bottom, you should see the option.
