    Take a serial letter with more than one page. How to format that?

     

    If you want a bigger letterhead on page one for every address there is no way to do that with headers, if you want a smaller letterhead on the second, third and fourth page at the same time.

     

    Same problem with footers.

     

    This is a realworld problem: Multipage Form Letters: Headers, Page Breaks, etc.

     

    Therefor I suggest more flexibility for parts, especially headers and footers via options. Possible options:

     

    • scale parts such as header/footer yes or no
    • make header/footer smaller automatically regarding the content size yes or no
    • print header/footer on every page, only the very first page, the first page for every record, the very last page, the last page for every record
    • hide header/footer completely if condition xy is met
    • show navigation part in page preview yes or no - needed for interface elements if the standard toolbar is hidden
