Multi-Page Tables

next generation

Multi-page tables flow from one page to another due to the fact that they are larger than a single page or due to their placement in the document. You can scroll across pages for large tables and use the arrow keys on your keyboard to move through your table from one page to another.

Headers in Multi-Page Tables

Multi-page tables can have one or more rows set as headers to repeat across page breaks on subsequent pages. Select the row number, right-click, and choose Assign Header Row.

The document outline panel

To remove the header, right-click on the row number again and choose Remove Header Row.

Header rows can also be set in the Table Properties panel. Click on the table and choose the Settings icon in the vertical toolbar to the right. Use the drop-down menu to set the number of rows that you would like to repeat as headers on subsequent pages.

The document outline panel

To remove a header from the Table Properties panel, set the drop-down back to zero.

Page Breaks in Large Tables

To set a page break for a table, click on the table and choose the Settings icon in the vertical toolbar to the right to open the Table Properties panel. Under Table Breaking, the available options include the following:

  • Never break if smaller than a page
  • Always break across pages
  • Only break when table exceeds (set percentage of page)

If you have table breakpoints set in your table, those will also be indicated at the bottom of the panel.
