Sorry I didn't answer your question sooner. I was subscribed to an
older listserv (IDS-L) and thought I was getting everyone's comments,
when I was actually missing out on lots of good conversations!
My slip is made of of several cells (8 per slip, 2 slips per page).
Each cell's height is locked so the slip does not get longer with more
text. (Right-click, "Table Properties," select the "row" tab. Make
sure it says "Row height is Exactly," not "Row height is At least.").
Each slip is exactly the same size.
What could happen, though, is that the text overflows the cell and
simply vanishes. I haven't had this happen since making a few changes:
1.) Getting rid of unnecessary fields to leave more white space
2.) Using if/then statements to make labels for fields display only if
there is anything in the field to display.
3.) Placing less useful, not-really-necessary fields last. If
something gets cut off, so be it!
I also do the same with our loan slips (see attached), which are
vertical and similar to yours. The shipping label on the bottom is
always at the very bottom, every time. That way, we can perforate or
cut the shipping labels off of a whole stack of slips at once.

Nice print template! I like the design.
Have you figured out a way to prevent the horizontal midline on your
slips from changing location from page-to-page?
We also started with requests on top and bottom, but found that
differences in journal title, article title, notes field, etc,
caused some requests to be shorter or longer than others. As a
result, the midline between top and bottom request on a slip
varied for each printed page, and we had to cut each page separately
rather than slice through a pile of slips. In the end,
we went with a vertical midline instead since it remained constant.
