Pagebreaks in adobe forms

Hi,

I have a case at hand where a pdf is generated and is running fine, however there is a huge page break(empty space) in between the pages heading and content. All I that have is the pdf(with blank space in between) and the name of the form.

I have the sap form on which this customized form is based. How ever, all I could explore so far was comparing the properties of the Z form with sap one.

I try to preview the pdf (in display mode) but there are no contents visible(nothing! only some logo and 2 boxes). Isnt there any location where the test data is usually stored? or any way through which I can add the data manually, so that when I preview, I somehow tinker with the available options and get rid of the page breaks.

Please suggest

    Hello,

    I have a case at hand where a pdf is generated and is running fine, however there is a huge page break(empty space) in between the pages heading and content.

    Check if the content subform has content type flowed (rearange the form elements one after one).

    I try to preview the pdf (in display mode) but there are no contents visible(nothing! only some logo and 2 boxes).

    Maybe that is not a problem with the data. if nothing can be seen, ten you should check the scripting (in the form) if the scripts are hiding the form parts or in the context, check the alterantives if these are hiding it.

    Isnt there any location where the test data is usually stored?

    You can generate the test data when you launch your LCD outside SAP (from program files), should be easy for you to find the menu item which can do that for you.

    or any way through which I can add the data manually

    Of course, you can launch the form from SFP using F8 and add your test data there (like FM testing).

    Hope some of that helps, Otto

    An easy way to view formatting changes in the Preview PDF is to add a default value in the object's object pallette -> Value tab -> Default field.

    Then, say you change a content area's height, you can switch over to the Preview PDF to see any formatting changes.

    • Well, well, there is a note about debugging Adobe for WD, something like 999998.

      and of course there is the forms trace, which is turned on in SFP menu - very detailed trace is the right one - then create/ generate the form and at the bottom left there is the attachments icon where you will find the debug files.
