    I have a CrossTab report that has 3 groups and in the lowest (last) group I have made the column heading text vertical by setting the angle of the textbox to 270. 

    When I run the report it is not growing or shrinking that textbox even though both CanGrow and CanShrink are set to true - it appears to be remaining at its initial size on every page.  Our client would much prefer that it is able to grow so that the occasional longer text still fits without truncation.

    The other column headings that have not been made vertical are still growing when needed.

    Currently using Reporting Q3 2015.

    Hello J,

    When the TextBox item's Angle property is used the CanGrow and CanShrink properties are not applied as the text may grow to infinity resulting in a bad layout. Thus our solution is - with applied angle, the text is rendered within the TextBox item's Size defined on designing the report.

    For more details, please check TextBox overview.
