I would put the htmlText of your scrollable field into a variable. You
might need to deliberately strip all cr & return chars so that you have
one long string in the variable and then replace "</p>" with ("</p>" &
return). Anyway I would count out the number of lines, select an
appropriate line to cut at, check it for number of chars and cut it
down to a size that fits a printed page and add "</p>" to the end of
the cut point. Then start the next page from the cut point with "<p>"
I wouldn't be surprised if there was a way or better way to set page
lengths before printing. I've never tried to do this. Sounds like a
nice feature to have though.
