Working with Page Breaks

Working with Page Breaks

Using a page break in a template is fairly straightforward, even when the page break is conditional. In other words, when the page break is to be included or excluded on the basis of an <<If>> command.

For example:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit.

<<If(Type = ‘Long’)>>……………………………Page Break………………………………………………….
<<Else()>>Pellentesque habitant morbi tristique senectus et netus et malesuada fames ac turpis egestas. Proin pharetra nonummy pede. Mauris et orci.<<End()>>

Aenean nec lorem. In porttitor. Donec laoreet nonummy augue.

This will work as expected (as against strange side effects if you were to use a section break to achieve a new page).

Sometimes XpressDox might ask you to put an <<If>> and an <<End>> on two separate paragraphs, whereas they are separated by a page break. The is because a page break in Word® is not regarded as starting a new paragraph.

A sample template demonstrating how to use a Page Break and <<ForEach()>> command together is in the template Repeating-PageBreak.xdtpl in the My Documents\XpressDox\Samples folder.
