This is a custom pro-forma invoice, basically. The ship-to address fields are in a parent group-header of the data. Naturally, many fields are often blank, like Contact or Address2. I set them all to CanShrink. OK so far.
When I do this, the report crunches the address, but not the row (the group header), so all that space I saved just ends up under the column headers (and looks stupid).
Some Googling says click the row and set it to CanShrink also. But the row is filled with a Rectangle, of course, and I can never seem to select the row; it always selects Rectangle2 instead.
Any thoughts? I saw @ckrusen mentioned something about a textbox can’t shrink. Maybe rectangles are the same?
So what do others do? Just put the address outside of the Tablix? Does that help?
