Page breaks in dash boards
We use a dashboard to create a printed report for some of our customers. It would be nice to be able to con troll page breaks with some of the following
- page break before a section if the section will end up being broken across 2 pages
- page break if only x lines or centimetres or some other form of measurement left on a page
- just a dead simple page break

@Philipp,
In some cases, I've created Word docs under a User Property Table. You can relate multiple tables to the User Prop Table and then set up a Dashboard with that record (User Prop) with a Print UR, a FilterL and the other related views.

It's a bit complex to explain but essentially, the Dashboard that you normally print can be recreated via the User Prop record and the sections can be pushed to a new page via a page break in MS Word. Also, the table record results will break over the page if too long for 1 page and you can keep the Header row to break over the page.

@ Philipp, I found the following works well:

1. Insert a Text section into your dashboard and make the 'Heading' a single Space.
2. Place the following HTML code into the text section: <p style="page-break-before: always">
3. Mark the 'Forma't as HTML
4. Sort this into the dashboard element where you would like a page break.
5. Repeat for more breaks.
