PDF: Page Break

ReportR: Page Break


By default, each section (widget) in your PDF report is placed one underneath the next and a new page will start whenever necessary. But for esthetic purposes, it can be handy to start a section on the next page. Use a Page Break widget when you want to have a specific section (widget) starting on a new page.

  1. Setting up the widget
  2. Widget logic rules
  3. Other available widgets

1 Setting up the widget

When you've added the page break widget, there's not much more you need to do! Just check that the page padding is as you want it. Adjust it using the arrows or by entering the desired value in mm.


The pages until the first page break will use the options that you set in the Design tab. After you have inserted a page break, the page padding values will apply to all of the pages until the next page break.

Here's an example of how page breaks are used to ensure that each part of the report will start on a new page.

2 Widget logic rules

You can add widget logic rules if you only want a page break to occur under certain conditions. Click add rule and now select which condition from the drop-down menu should be used to decide when to show the widget.

Once you've chosen the initial condition, you can specify exactly what conditions need to be met, for example the answer on question must be greater than a certain number. If you need a more complex condition, click on the white circle with a purple + sign to add criteria that will be in addition to the other criteria (AND), or instead of (OR).

Tip: If you have set up outcomes, you can choose an outcome as the criteria for showing the widget. Choose outcome from the drop-down menu and then select what the outcome should or should not equal so that the widget will be shown. You can set the outcome as the only criteria, or as an additional criteria as shown below. In this example, we clicked the purple + button and added that the widget should be shown if both the response on intro field criteria AND the outcome criteria is fulfilled.
