The + signs are appearing to indicate to you that there is more data in the field than there is visible on the screen. There are two solutions to this.
1. Make the fields so that they can dynamically grow to fit the content that is entered into them. This involves re-engineering the form. There is a sample of this that ships with the product and is located at this location from the root of the designer install:
EN\Samples\Forms\Purchase Order\Dynamic Interactive\Forms
Have a look at the comments field at the bottom of the form. If you put in too much info then it will grow to show all data after you tab out of the field.
2. You can have it so that the text that is inserted into the field can shrink to fit the visible area. This is the easier of the solutions. To do this, set the field up to allow multi-line and limit length to visible area. Then on the Font palette, click on the right arrow below the Font tab (beside the text "currently editing caption and value"). Choose the Edit Value option. The text will update to say "currently editing Value properties. Change the font size to 0 (you will have to type in a 0. Now when the amount of text exceeds the visible area the font size will drop a value to allow you to see all text. This can be a negative as well for if we put too much text in then the font becomes so small that we connot read it.....but it is easier.
Hope this helps
I tried this but I still get the scroll bar rather than the text going to page 2; what am I missing?
Are you rendering your form as a dynamic form?
Can you post and a sample data file to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will have a look.
