Feature request to enable font size to be automatically reduced at report generation time to fit text to a fixed dimension text box (text retrieved from a data source).
Alternate feature request 0000928 would achieve similar results (but not as automagical)
Note: My company is willing to sponsor this enhancement, subject to agreeable terms, if it can be completed in the next couple of months.
The feature sounds very useful to me as well. I think it's not an iReport feature though, so it needs to get logged in the JasperReports tracker. (The same applies to 0000928.) The JR developers aren't likely to look at the request here.
Thanks mdahlman. Logged in JasperReports tracker as 0005117.
