  • Hi Ralf,

    This is working as designed. In order for a stretchable component (memo, RichText, etc) to stretch vertically, it needs to be placed in a dynamic height band. Static-only bands such as the Footer Band and Page Layers (PageStyle) do not support stretching components.

    One option is to vertically size the RichText component to the height of the PageStyle so there is enough room to print the information needed.

    Another is to manually measure the height of the text using the printer or screen canvas, then sizing the TppRichText accordingly in code.

    Best Regards,
