Envelope Blank Line - Collapse if blank?

We've created our own custom envelope template, and everything populates perfectly. However we noticed that if an address doesn't have an "address 2" field that a blank line is generated in place of it. When I check the properties of that field  the option "collapse if blank" is checked however that does not seem to be the case. Please help!

If fields overlap vertically they will not shrink even though the property is checked.

So how can you make sure they do not overlap vertically? Any tips (other than creating loads of space between the fields, which means they won't fit on a label)?

Use the preferences panel (press F4), Watch the field height. Consider getting the third party book I cowrote.
