Default Verically spreading text (merged fields) in a table

Hi




Does anyone know if it's possible to set up a table cell (or a text box) so that the mail merge fields spread out evenly from top to bottom on short or longer text fields?


Below, the top example is just aligned to the middle vertically, but the others show what I'm trying to achieve - a fixed area where shorter text is not bunched into the middle, but justifies to fills the space available.






Thanks for reading

I know of no way. However, I believe you could have the cell height adjust to content if that would help.

Thanks for your reply - unforunately the cell size has to stay fixed as it's being printed onto a sheet with a specific area
