You must set the parent subforms to flowed instead of positioned.
Hi, thanks for the answer...
But then everything that I have done goes all over the page do I have to lock them first or some ?
Unfortunately, when you change from Positioned to Flowed all the layout of that subform will get messed up and you’ll have to redesign it almost from scratch.
But it's the only way if you want to change the form layout and have your form rearrange itself “on-line”.
aha okey.. well thx alot ! Ill try that out ... many thanks.
ouch... I have given up today... Try again tomorrow.
How do I control the flow now ? and how can I arrange forms in the document when everything is flowing ? its like everything comes on top of each other now. Well ill try it tomorrow, there is mixed smoke coming out of my head right know... to much thinking and fury

There are 2 orientations possible, top-bottom and western something (left-right). You have to choose one of these 2 and then align your object acordingly.
Use the margin and padding properties to align your objects.

Create a forms with a Single subform. Name it (let it be "Page").
Change the layout to "Flow" from "top to bottom".
Add another subform inside page.
change property of this subform to flow.
Add a text field inside the second subform
change the properties of the text field.
Select the check box called "Expand to fit".
preview it . Your text will grow as you enter txt and leave the field.
Add subform , change layout and add the components that the trick for growing
and dynamic forms...
All the best.
yeah thx.. well Helpful, but still not getting it like I want.
How is it possible to make something so simple so difficult ! This should just be easy to put in, drag around and do it's thing... smash a check mark into "grow while writing" and "increase hight if needed".
This is just getting even more complicated then it was
When this growing problem is working then this the whole form is not working, and by using margin to fit them into the page is just taking too long time instead of be able to move it your self. Well again, I am going to sleep on it.
I am attaching a sample form .
Hope this helps you
Sorry i forgot to attach the sample file.
Don't know what it is, my eye's or my head. maybe that is the reason I am not able to solve this problem in Designer... but where is this sample ? I do not see it ?
p.s. I am a new user in here and in Design as well like you have maybe already seen
I only see blank... comment... no attachment or anything.
You won't be able to add an attachment (due to viruses being uploaded). You can share the file on Acrobat.com and then put the link to the file in the forum message.
