[Solved] Printing longer pages in landscape

Postby bruce@golddogs.com » Sat Feb 20, 2016 3:44 am

I am new to Base and I am trying to create a membership list. It is about 10 columns wide so I had to go to 14 inch paper in landscape mode.
The problem I am having is that the first page in report prints ok but the following pages revert back to 11 inches and makes the printer think it is jammed.
I was able to make this work a few days ago but cannot recreate this. When I view the report, I can see the full width of the first sheet but all then following sheets are shortened. Any ideas would help.

It is an ordinary Writer document.
Open the report for editing.
Apply the "Landscape" page style.
Open the style dialog (r-click>Modify...) and make sure that the next page uses the same page style(tab: Organizer).
Save and close the report.
Save the database container.
Please, edit this topic's initial post and add "[Solved]" to the subject line if your problem has been solved.

It took a bit of looking into the styles and had to add a "next page" but now it works...Thank you!
