We would like to have the signature in a letter move along with the text.
The content can be different in a textfield, but the signature below the textfield should follow the length of the text.
Is this possible?
We've tried using Anchors, but it doesn't seem to do the trick for us.

Any help would be appreciated

Anchors are the only way to have different objects relate to eachother - and is actually designed for moving autographs.

Can you clarify why this option didn't work for you? We know that there can be slight differences between screen rendering of fonts and printer output. This may cause that it looks as if the autograph shifted (while actually the text format is different). Unfortunately this is inherent to the Windows components that render the fonts on screen.

This only causes problems however in large text boxes. If you split up into multiple text boxes, there will be more accurate closeby referencepoints for the anchor, and the shifting will be reduced.

Also, if it are larger parts of static text, put the in the PDF background, or load them dynamically as EPS with preview.

As stated, a bit more info on what you are trying to achieve, and why anchors did not work may shed a light on how we can resolve this.

Kind regards,

Floris,

Thanks for your reply.
The reason why the signature doesn't move along with the above text is that the textbox doesn't resize when there is more or less text in the box. Thus the signature doesn't move with the changed text.
Does this clarify my problem more?

To activate the textbox to resize do the following:

Select your textbox and set the "Snap Frame to Content" property to "Yes".
