Adding a vertical scroll bar to a field
1. In Layout mode, select one or more fields.
2. Click Inspector Inspector button in the layout bar, then click the Data Data tab.
3. In the Field area, for Control style, choose Edit Box.
4. Select Show vertical scroll bar, then choose an option.
You can also add a scroll bar to a portal. See Creating portals to display related records.
When you print a field or a portal with a scroll bar, FileMaker Pro prints only the data that is visible without scrolling. To print all the data, resize the field or portal to make it larger, and then specify sliding options to remove the extra blank space when you print.
You can't add scroll bars to container fields, repeating fields, or fields formatted to use a value list.
