4.10.1 Displaying a section layout view

To display the layout view for a report section:

    • Choose View > Layout Section, then select the section you want to view and check whether or not you want to view or edit the margin area.

    • In the toolbar, click the Header Section, the Main Section, or Trailer Section buttons to view the Header Section, Main Section, or Trailer Section, respectively; click the Edit Margin button to view or edit the margin area.

4.10.2 Creating a default layout for a section

To create a default layout for a report section:

  1. In the Paper Layout view, display the layout view for the section.

  2. Choose Tools > Report Wizard.

  3. Follow the wizard to create a default layout for your report.

  4. To create a layout or objects in the margin area of a section, click the Edit Margin button in the toolbar to view/edit the margin area.

  5. To add another layout section to the current layout, create an additional report layout (see Section 4.5.5, "Creating an additional report layout").

  6. Make further modifications to the default layout manually in the Paper Layout view.

    Caution:

    If you re-enter the Report Wizard after making manual adjustments to your layout in the Paper Layout or Paper Design view, you will lose these layout changes when you click Finish in the Report Wizard, which redefaults the layout.

  7. Set properties for the section, as desired.
