Prevent a large textbox from getting put on the second page in SSRS

Problem:
When I render a SSRS report in PDF and the textbox is too big or long, it puts my large textbox on the second page and leave the first page with large empty space.

Solution:
In SSRS 2008 R2 and Visual Studio 2008:
Click (not-right click) a textbox and go to the properties window (lower right side of VS) -> KeepTogether = false.
The text will cleanly cut between a line and continue on the next page.
