Pagination Issue

Dear SDN Community,

I am facing a rather complex issue while implementing my adobe form. My form consists of 8 Body Pages, based on three different master pages. First and last master page are Portrait A4 Formats, the second one is Landscape A4. On the first two pages there is some static content, no problem at all. My problems start with the third Page. On that one, I have an iterating subform. Therefore I have the pagination settings for this subform set to:

Place: On Page Area 1 (a A4 vertical Master Page)

After: "go to next page"

On the fourth Page, the settings for the subform are:

Place: Following Previous

After: continue Filling Parent

The Fith Page has the settings:

Place: On Page Area 2 (A4 horizontal)

After : Go Next Page

This works fine so far. Now there is the tricky part: Under some conditions, the Forth Page has to be hidden out. When doing this, the page is being hidden, but there remains an emtpy page between the 3rd and the 5th Page. This Page is being generated, because of the setting on the 3rd page ("After: go to next page")

Unfortunately I cannot set the Masterpage2 and the property "following Prevois" for the 5th page to avoid this empty page.

Any help?

Kind Regards

Alex

    Hi,

    This may seem confusing.As i understand you have 5 pages. But in some situations you have to hide the 4th page.

    If the above is true , I think what you can do is keep the 4th page (the one that you have to dynamically hide) as the last page. In the pagination tab there is a propert "After Goto Page" where you can give page numbers.So you can control pagination from this property.

    Your final pagination properties can be as follows

    Page1 - After - Goto Page - Page2

    Page2 - After - Goto Page - Page3

    Page3 - After - Continue Filling Parent

    Page4 - After - Goto Page - Page5

    Page5 - After - Continue Filling Parent

    I hope i have got the question right..

    thanks,

    Virag

      "Go to Content Area" lists all Content Areas, "Go to Page" litsts all Page Areas (of the Master Pages). Since I am having only three Master Pages, I only see 3 Page Areas for selection.
