PDFs from subsummary reports

Recommended Posts


I've attached a PDF I've generated which is based on a layout with subsummaries and I was wondering if I could avoid the situation which has happened at the bottom of page 1 where the leading subsummary continues onto page 2.

When Filemaker is creating PDFs is it able to work out that a leading subsummary can't fit completely onto a page and therefore starts it at the top of the next page instead?

This isn't exactly what you want, but perhaps it could help?

In the part definition dialog for your subsummary:

Layouts->Part Setup->Change Button

There is a checkbox marked: "Page break before each occurrence"

which will result in the separate sub-summarized groups of records each being given their own set of pages.

I don't know what you'd have to do to get the result you actually want, but maybe you can work around it. Multiple print jobs?

Yes it's a good suggestion, maybe if I try the option of a break every 4 or 5 occurences or something. Thanks!
