Re: Control items that exceed the height limit...

Return to index

Hey Sergey,

  If I have a different print size for an item being shown, is there a method

to pass back the new height or bottom of the custom print drawing to keep

following items or text in sync?  I suspect that every item that follows

is still expecting the item to take up the space in the view.  I have not

gotten this far to test.  I just thought I would ask..  Thanks
