    When a size of Visual Report element is changed it can cause an overlap of elements. Is there a page break element or similar that could stop that?

    Asked by Swoodruff2002 on June 18, 2015 at 05:36 PM

    It would be great if we could insert page breaks or move a chart to the "end of a specific page". I'm mixing pie charts with Text Grids. So when I define the height of the text grid table... and then want to show more submission responses, the grid height will change and I'll have to re layout the whole report from that point forward...

    As mentioned on the previous thread, I know what you mean by that and for that reason I will raise this to our developers as a bug.

    The only issue with page break in a report that I can think of right of the bat would be that page break would require either a small line between the pages that would define the pages.

    To most people the 'paper' must be of the same size, since otherwise they might find it disorienting or wrong, so setting the page size would need to be permanent.

    This could also raise a question of what happens if the chart, or any other element is bigger than the page size.

    What I will do is to raise this to our developers as a bug so that they can take a look into it and when resolved, you will be updated about it over this thread.

    I do however fear that until then, you will need to move the elements one by one until they all just click in their place.

    I hear ya. I just want to be able to insert a chart in the middle or change the length without having to re drag everything below that point.  You get it...

     

    Thanks Ben.

    So, I just created a long report for a form... I have another form that is very, very similar, can I clone the report and link it to the second form, or do I have to build it all from scratch? including the style?

    Unfortunately you cannot clone a report to a different form or even within the same form. The new report must be created from scratch every time.

    The issue mentioned on this thread was already elevated to our higher team support and is now assigned to one of our developer. Our developer assigned will provide response on this thread when available.

    Thank you.

    Any updates re: adding page breaks to a visual report?  As an example, I have a 9-page visual report, but to get it to look at all decent when printed, I had to adjust the placement/spacing of every question multiple times and check in print preview to see if I got the start of a question at the top of a page, rather than having the question on one page and the graph on the next.  Very time consuming and being able to drop in a page break (like when creating a form) seems that it would be a clean solution.
