I have created an interactive document in LibreOffice - it is a form to be filled-out with questions and answers. (not a database) I used Form Controls to create text boxes - where users can input their answers to questions. Some text boxes are small but allow for scrolling. I am having trouble printing all of the words that are entered into the text boxes, when more words are entered and are not visible without scrolling. The only words printed are the words that are visible without scrolling-through the text box. Is there any way to change the printer settings or form controls to allow for printing all text within each text box? Is there a way to expand the text box to the size of the text entered?

Not that I know of, this is a limitation of the text box control implementation and a feature request was made ages ago for this very purpose, but nothing has come of it yet.

A macro solution for auto-resizing the content of your field inserted into a label rather than a textbox control can be found here
