    line(s) in dynamic field not printed

    Level 7
      hi:

      i'm having this problem on a project that already passed the deadline
      so, i'll really appreciate any suggestion/advice/idea

      MX2004
      dynamic field, no HTML, Arial, 8 points, no font embeded

      the text wraps differently in screen preview and printed page. i think
      it's normal due to differences in resolution between both devices (96
      dpi in screen and 72 in printer)

      so, having more lines in printed doc than screen, causes that sometimes
      the last(s) line isn't printed in the left column (each column is a field)

      note that the last line is moved to the right column when printed but
      the same doesn't occur with the remaining line of the precedent
      paragraph. it seems the printer driver can not split a paragraph when
      the field overflows!?

      you can take a look at for better understanding:

      tia,

          This is going to be a real shot in the dark.

          Try setting the text fields to pixel perfect in size. No .34 of a pixel widths or heights. Round up or down the size to the nearest whole pixel number.

          Ive had the same problem in screen before and its a bug in flash.

            i already have fields' dimensions & positions adjusted to integers as it
            improves the readibility in screen for small fonts but it doesn't seem
            to affect printing, at least regarding my problem

            thanks for your time
