Page Setup

There are two ways to set the Page Setup for a particular document. Setting a Page Setup includes specifying the paper size, specifying the printer that will be used to print the document and specifying the tray in that printer that will be used. The two methods are:
  1. Open the list of forms from the Navigation Centre, highlight a form and select 'Page Setup' from the File menu.

  2. Open the Form Template register, highlight a Form Template and select 'Page Setup' from the File menu. This method cannot be used on Mac OS X machines.
If you use both methods, the second one will determine the page setup that will be used.

Note that when a particular user sets the page setup for a document, that page setup will not be universal. It will only be used when that user prints the document. Each user that will print a particular document should therefore set their own page setup for that document after having logged in using one of the two methods above. As well as being user-specific, a page setup is also platform-specific. So, if a user is likely to print a particular document on more than one platform (for example, from Windows and Mac OS X machines), that user should set separate page setups for each platform (from a machine of each type).

The advantage using the first method to set a page setup is that it will not be necessary to give a particular user access to the System module to enable them to set page setups. The second method will be advantageous when you assign more than one Form Template to a particular form: the different Form Templates can be printed using different page setups. One situation where this can be useful is when you need different copies of a particular document to be printed from different printer trays or even different printers. For example, you may need office and customer copies of each Invoice to be printed from different trays. One way to achieve this is to duplicate the Form Template and then list both Form Templates in the relevant 'Form Definition' window, remembering to specify a Seq. for each one:

Using the second method above, you can assign a separate page setup that includes printer tray information to each Form Template.

If you are using Mac OS X, after selecting 'Page Setup' from the File menu, press the [OK] and then [Print] buttons to save the page setup. If you do not press [Print], the page setup will not be saved.

Removing a page setup will depend on the method that you originally used to assign the page setup. If you used the first method, open the list of forms from the Navigation Centre, highlight a form and select 'Remove Page Setup' from the File menu:

If you used the second method, open the Form Template register, highlight a Form Template and select 'Remove Page Setup' from the Operations menu:
