Dynamic Layout depending on Portals

I'm not sure how to word this and I am sure that there is an easy solution but I'm giving it a shot anyway because it has been something I have been struggling with since I started using Filemaker. I have made some inconvenient workarounds in the meantime.


The issue is that I have multiple layouts that I use in Filemaker that use portals that I export into a PDF and send as a report so it needs to look presentable when exported as a PDF. One of the layouts that I use has ~30 portal rows. Sometimes there are less than 30 portal records and sometimes there are upwards of 250 portal records. As a workaround, I have made copies of the portal to show records 31 - 60 on the next page, then 61 - 90 on the following page, then 91 - 120 on the following page. The problem is deleting all of the blank pages when there are only a few.


Is there a better workaround for this? It seems like something that should be easy to figure out but I haven't been able to wrap my head around it.
