Table pagination in 4D Write Pro

Automatically translated from English

Tables are a great feature in 4D Write Pro since they open a whole new world of possibilities. Their flexibility allows them to hold as many rows and columns as needed, and the cells can contain paragraphs and pictures.

Things just got even better with 4D v17 R2 thanks to a new feature: table pagination! And you don’t have to manage the pagination yourself, it’ll be fully automatic. No more counting rows to check a page’s size or orientation. From now on, the tables are dynamically split when a page or a column break occurs.

Yes, you heard it right, dynamically. You don’t have to worry if the page format changes, everything will be recalculated automatically!

Of course, if you still want to manage page breaks or column breaks on your own, you can insert them anywhere inside a table. The breaks will not occur inside a row or a cell, they’ll always be placed for you at the beginning of a row.
