When you are editing report templates like 2 photo flyer, double sided you may need to temporarily adjust the page size to view the report bands and elements for the second page. In this walk-through we'll expand the report in edit mode so we can make changes to the Features layout, and then revert the report back to its original size.
Copy to Custom
The first step is to copy the report into the custom folder so we can edit it. Open reports and select a template, then click Copy to custom. The custom folder will automatically open with your new template selected so that you are ready to click Edit. Note you can enter a report name in the prompt below.
Select your new custom report and click Edit to start editing the template.
First click View > Zoom > Default size to view the template in the default zoom setting. At the bottom of the page we can see where the second page band begins. Next we'll extend the report layout to show the entire second page.
Open Report > Options...
Drop down the Paper size options and select Custom Size.
Now in Length enter 1000 to make the page long enough to temporarily display both pages so we can edit them. Once the changes are complete, we'll reverse the paper size back to A4. Click OK to continue.
Now we can scroll down to see all of the elements and scripting for the second page, along with the footer content for both pages. Note: The height of the footer band should not be expanded because it is calculated to fill two pages exactly.
Most of the second page is comprised of two main Richtext memos filled with expressions. There is one expression per line, to display Rates for example in a specific format or syntax such a dollar symbol, along with a bold label. However each line is only published if relevant information has been entered into SalesPartner. Empty fields are not shown, so if the rates have not been entered, then the rates label will not appear on the report.
You can preview a report with an extended layout. However the footer and page breaks will not publish correctly until you reinstate the original paper size layout of A4.
Open Report > Options, and drop down the paper size menu to select A4. Now when you preview the report, the page toggle buttons will be enabled so you can view the second page.
Click Save to save your custom report template before closing out of edit mode.
