I wrote previously about the difficulties I was having designing a form in Base. I've actually got the form pretty close to what I want now. Two more things remain.

  • Is there a way to have the field boxes print as a simple underline rather than a four-sided box? This will be a form that for now gets filled out on paper by hand.
  • Secondly, when I enter text in the text boxes and then save, it is lost. Some boxes I need to have persistent text.

Borders only have Flat, 3D, or Without Frame. To do what you want, select Without Frame and then use the "Line" tool from the "Drawing" toolbar to place a line under the control. This should give you the effect wanted. For persistent text, set this in the controls' properties under "Default text".
