Resizing layout parts
There are several ways to resize a layout part.
To resize a layout part:
In Layout mode, click the Selection tool Selection tool in the status toolbar.
When you resize a layout part, FileMaker Pro maintains the size of the other parts. For example, you can increase the height of the header part, but this won't affect the size of the part directly following the header part.
To maintain the height of the entire layout while changing the size of one layout part, Alt-drag (Windows) or Option-drag (Mac OS) the part label or part boundary. (This causes the size of the layout part immediately below the part you're changing to also change.)
To precisely resize a part, select the part by clicking its part label. Click Inspector Inspector button in the layout bar, then click Position. Enter a value for the part's Height or Bottom boundary in the Position area. For more information, see Using the Inspector to position objects.
You can also use the graphic rulers (choose View menu > Graphic Rulers) to help with precisely sizing parts. For more information, see Using graphic rulers and ruler gridlines.
You can't make a part smaller than the objects that it holds (in other words, you can't shrink a part by dragging its boundary across an object) unless you press Alt (Windows) or Option (Mac OS) as you drag the part boundary.
