A form can be composed of more than one section, and each section can have an entirely different layout to other sections on the same form (but they all have the same page size, as determined by the form size. Sections lend themselves to, for example, printing an invoice with a followup up page of terms and conditions. They are probably best avoided for things like cheques, where special stationery is required.

A section in a form presents information on a new page in an entirely different format.

When printing a multi-section form, all sections will be output together (i.e collated). Similarly when PDFing, all sections will be output to the same PDF file. This differs from form groups, which are collated separately, since they may use different stationery.

To create a new section

  1. Select Add from the Section pop-up menu in the tool palette

A new section will be created for the form. This will be blank, allowing you to add your own objects. You can have up to six sections on a form.

To change the section that you are working on

  1. Select the number of the desired section from the section pop-up in the tool palette

That section of the form will be displayed.

Tip: Where objects are common to more than one section, copy and paste them between sections, but make sure that, where calculations and lists have names, you change these names (names must be unique across the form).
