Start next row on new page

B. de Lange
Dear users,

 

I like to see the next row of a table on a new page. But I can't find how to
do. Can someone help me?

 

Kind regards,

There are various ways to do this.

o Go to Table | Table Properties | Text Flow (or right-click |
Table... | Text Flow) and note the options "Allow table to split
across pages and columns" and "Allow row to break across pages and
columns". Toggle those settings to achieve what you need. Note that
the first one applies to the entire table, whereas the second can be
applied to rows generally or separately, either by selecting the
relevant row(s) before applying a change or else by using right-click
| Row > | Allow Row to Break Across Pages and Columns" instead. This
is the ideal method if all you need is to avoid a row being split
across a page break.

o You can construct two separate tables. If you have already created
your table, you can split it into two. With the cursor in the part of
the row on the first page, go to Table | Split Table (or right-click
| Split Table). Then you can place the second table however you wish
using the normal facilities.

I trust this helps.

Dear Brian,

Thank you very much. But I was not clear in my question.
In my table I like to have a row on the next page, while there is still room
on the page left and without splitting the table. Is that possible? In fact
I start with a new subject, but more information can be added later.

Kind regards,

Bert de Lange

No probs!

Oh, I suspect you were.

I don't see any way to do that. The help text says that the "Allow
table to split across pages and columns" option "[a]llows a page
break or column break between the rows of a table", but I suspect
that refers to a natural and necessary break, not to a manual break.

But the big question is why are you insisting on not using the
obvious technique of splitting the table? There seems no difference
in appearance between a single table and separate tables except for
any borders, and surely you wouldn't want borders spanning the unused
part of the first page anyway? Separate tables would also mean that
adjustments to column widths would apply separately, which might
increase work very slightly. You can add extra rows at the bottom of
the first table as easily as you could add them between existing rows
of a single table, of course.

I always think of question like this as being rather like "How do I
turn right in my car without using the steering wheel?". The steering
wheel is provided for the purpose, so why not use it?
