About Manual Editing of Multi-Page Outputs

2) Below shows a page breaks inserted by OnePager:
- a) You may select, drag, and drop an automatic vertical or horizontal page break.
- b) By right clicking in open space where you desire to place a page break, OnePager will display the context menu below to let you insert a horizontal or vertical manual page break:
- c) When you click the Horizontal sub-command as shown above, OnePager will create a new page break at the position of your original right click as shown below:
- d) Both automatically generated and manually inserted page breaks will now be shown if you are in the M x N mode.
- e) If you are in automatic x automatic mode, the manually inserted page break may replace an automatic page break if it is possible to do so.
- f) You may now select the page break with a left or right click. Also, a left click will display a border around the page break as shown below:
- g) After selecting the horizontal page break, dragging the cursor to the left or right will change the location of the page break. Since horizontal page breaks are placed between the lowest level time axis tic marks, you should drag the page break as close as you can to the appropriate time axis tic boundary. Releasing the left mouse button will complete the action as shown below:
- h) Inserting a page break manually will override any previous settings of the Height or Width settings section as shown below:
- i) Right clicking a manual page break lets you delete it. The right click brings up a small context menu with a delete command as shown below:
- j) Note that you cannot delete an automatic page break in this way. Rather, you can remove all the page breaks by using the Page Breaks button.
- k) Further, if you are in the 3 X 2 mode, say, and you delete a manual page break, OnePager will insert an automatic page break to maintain the 3 X 2 mode condition.
