    I'm assuming that you're referring to text area fields and when they are inputted with a lot of text situation and inability to print such forms (text that is not visible will not be printed). 

    You could try replacing those fields with Auto

    You can add TextArea Autosize field from the More Fields menu (like in the picture above).

    With that field added you don't need to worry about the size of the input since it will resize automatically.

    Let us know how it works for you and if you have any further questions.

    Thank you!
