Printing Sources on new page for narrative reports

Post by Linda Reinfeld » 17 Feb 2021 21:31

Using v7. Printing an Individual Narrative Report.
I have radio button ticked under Options/Sources tab
When I view the report in FH the Sources start on a new page.
I save the report to a .rtf file.
When I look at the .rtf report, the sources print on the same page as the beginning of the report.

Has anyone else noticed this behavior?

Thanks -

On the Options > Sources tab I presume you've set Location of Source Citations to At end of record on a new page

With that setting in FH the Sources section starts a new page but as you observed the RTF file does not.

I would have to run up FH V6 to see if it got it correct then.

Anyway, it is worth reporting to CP.

I've repeated the Narrative Report with the same settings in FH V6 and it correctly starts Sources on a new page in the RTF.
So it is a bug introduced by FH V7 that needs reporting and fixing.

Thanks Mike. I have reported it to Calico Pie.

Can I jump in on this printing question?

While doing various reports, I cannot find out how to separate generations to begin on a new page. Is it possible?

Yes, the trick is to use Report > Options > Format then select Hdg Style Hdg Level 2 and Edit... the Above Heading Gap to 1000 pt.

That works in FH V7 but in FH V6 it was Keep with Next that needed increasing to 99 lines.
