Flowable Form does not flow onto next page

Avatar

Level 1

I have created a form with a table wrapped in a subform and made it flowable and each field expandable. That part works great. However, I cannot get the content to flow to a subsequent page. When the content is too large for the page, it just keeps pushing down beyond the bottom of the form where I cannot even access it.

The form contains a table of three rows and within each of those rows, all but one column contain a table of three rows. The highest level table is wrapped in a subform and it is marked as flowed with each text field set to expand to fit. I've selected every row and subform I can and checked the box "Allow page breaks within content". The forms still does not break at the end of the page but just keeps pushing the data down off the page.

Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

The root subform (probably the Page subform) needs to be set to flowed not positioned.

Thank you for your assistance. However, that subform is flowed and Allow page breaks within content is checked.

Is there something under pagination for that subform that I might need to do. I tried creating a page 2 and intended to set the Overflow on the pagination tab to page 2 but that is not an option. I can only set this to PageArea1 or ContentArea1 which I see are objects in the master pages and I do not have a page 2 in master pages. Is that the key?
