I have a document which I created in Adobe Lifecycle Designer ES.   2/3 of the way down the document it has a text field which I have set to allow any length of text.  The document has several lines of text after this text field and I would like the text field to move those lines to a new page if the text field contains a large note.  Hard to explain.  Could someone help please.    I don't really know much about this product and I'm new to the forum.       Thanks

Okay, you need to make sure your form is 'dynamic' and not 'static'. Do a save as into 'dynamic' if you are not there. 'Dynamic' is what makes your document able to grow and shrink as needed.
Then your main page will need to be set to 'flowed'  [object tab, subform tab, content field]
Your text box height can now be set to 'expand to fit' [under layout].
You may have already done all of this. 
To get the text following the text box to stay together and move to next page if required, group that text into a subform and then look for the subform property that says 'allow page breaks within content' and uncheck that box to keep the subform together.
