How to add a page break? (aka "Form Feed")

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Is it possible to include a page break in a text field?

FM has a very handy "new line" symbol but apprently no page break symbol.

I saw a post somewhere enabling a copy/paste of the page break symbol with BBedit for Macs.

Is there anything similar - or better - for Windows?

(Our printers are PCL 5e lasers.)

TIA

Well I didn't get too many answers did I?

I haven't given up yet.

So I created a Word document with nothing in it -except a page break. Saved it and then pasted the doc into a container field. Sneaky?

Yes, very sneaky, but it doesn't work ... either.

I can't understand why.

I have a few records with one text field and one container field. The container field contains the Word doc which contains the page break.

I have a layout with the text field followed by the container field.

I print out the browsed records and it all comes out on the same page. Why doesn't it jump to the next page after the container field?

TIA

What must I do to get FM insert a page break?

Split your data into fields, records and groups of records.

I don't want to.

My data is in the text field.

I want to be able to impose a page break anywhere I want in the print out.

For me, inserting a page break should be no more complicated than inserting a line break.

FM is very good at inserting new lines.

If this and that

Insert new line

End if

If this and that and the other

Insert new page break

End if

Yeah!

There must be some way to do that?

If there is, I am not yet aware of it.
