QXP 2015: Starting of Paragraph

Postby PetarMakedonecot » 24 Jul 2015, 02:01

In Paragraph Styles QXP is missing "Starting of Paragraph":

Anywhere
In Next Column
In Next Frame
On Next Page
On Next Odd Page
On Next Even Page

Pressing "Enter" on numeric keyboard is just for manual formating. We miss this options in "Paragraph Styles".

Hin Petar,

there is a workaround for “next column” (or “next page in single column layouts”):
Add a “space before” to the paragraph style, that shall always start in a new column, with a value greater than any text box’s height. So it will automatically jump to the next column (or page in a single-column-layout).
It is not perfect, but a little help.

Regards,
Johannes

I'm all for your recommendations, Petar.

I use all the various work-arounds. Having the breaks at the paragraph level would be nice.

Thank you Johannes for your workarround. I knew it for a long time ago. What about if you wont to leave one page blank? But, why I (you, everybody) must calculate it, when it could be done automatically in Styles as in InDesign and other layout apps.

Hi Petar,
Yes, it would be fine to have this feature in QXP!
Why do other layout apps have it? I think they have it because they are basically XML-formatter with a (more or less …) nice UI and some non-XML-features for graphics. And with XML some layout functions are quite simple.
Regards,
Johannes
