Manually Changing the Number of Pages with OnePager 5.1

OnePager Pro and Express 5.1, as we mentioned elsewhere, support your need to insert, move, and remove page breaks in your project reports. OnePager also lets you  specify the number of horizontal and vertical pages in your document. In this mode, OnePager will take the number of pages you specify and place the horizontal and vertical page breaks for you.

To illustrate this, look at the single-page project view below and the Page Layout tab:

PV-PageLayout1X1-05282014

Now, suppose you want to configure the project view above into four pages: two horizontal and two vertical. To do this, just make the changes to the Document Fitting section of the Page Layout tab by selecting 2 pages for the Width and Height as shown below:

Pagelayoutribbon-Height-Widthto2X2-05282014

When these two selections are complete, the project view will look like this in Page Break View mode:

PV-PageLayout2X2-05282014

As you can see from the Width and the Height dropdowns, you have many choices including an “Automatic” choice where OnePager will examine the project view and will suggest an appropriate number of pages for you.

For example, for project views that have a lot of tasks extended over a relatively short time frame, selecting the “1 X Automatic” combination for Width and Height is a good way to set up a long (vertically) but narrow (horizontally) multi-page project view like the one below shown in Print Preview Mode:

The new multi-page feature in OnePager Pro and Express 5.1 gives you tremendous flexibility with your project reporting.
