Have you ever been limited by screen real estate in a solution? Have you ever had a field that you thought would only ever have a few words in it but user’s decided to write an essay in?
Sometimes the data in a certain field can vary greatly. It is a waste of layout space to size the field to show the largest possible amount of data, but also not optimal for users not to be able to see all of their data because a field isn’t big enough. This is especially true with number fields, where FileMaker chose to display an incredibly helpful ‘?’ if the number is to long for the text field object.
