Relatorio New Page

In an ODT file, how do I ensure that a certain section gets printed on a new page no matter how many records get printed before that section?

You must insert a page break before the starting of rendering the content for the record.
Most of the Tryton template are designed this way (pseudo-code):

<for each="record in records">
  <page break/>

I get the following traceback

Traceback (most recent call last):

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

When I told about “page break”, it is in pseudo-code. You must use the actual “page break” from LibreOffice menu Insert > Page Break.

Thank You for helping.
The solution worked.


I have a user who wants to select the records in the list view and then print them in a single go. However, each record needs to be printed from a new page. While trying the option, there is a blank page in the start (since we have given a Printed by, Printed on footer, it is appearing on the blank page). What is solution regarding the same?

If you have a starting blank page, it is because there are remaining content on it.
The best is too look at the fodt.
