Default Form with content controls - expands but at the bottom of the form

Hello,


I have created a fillable form using content controls.

For several of the fields, the bounding box needs to expand to accommodate a longer answer -- it does expand, but the text jumps to the very bottom of the form, rather than just expanding and moving the rest of the fields down. It's hard to find and the responder may not even know it's there.

Any suggestions would be great!
Thanks.

Without actually seeing the problem document, it can be difficult for anyone to diagnose the issue. Can you attach a document to a post with some representative data (delete anything sensitive)? You do this via the paperclip symbol on the 'Go Advanced' tab at the bottom of this screen.

Thanks you for responding.
Unfortunately/fortunately, I am not able to reproduce the problem.
So, I will have to drop it, at least for now.

Is it possible that the affected content controls could have been in a table cell with vertical alignment set to bottom?
