Page not flowing, did the usual subform flow and allow page breaks.... still not working.

I need some help with a form I have been working on. I successfully go the information to flow within a single page but none of my information flows on a second page. I have done the necessary flow and allow page breaks options but I am stuck at this point and my document doesn't get any longer than the first page. All the information on the first page is pushed further down and disappears i assume onto some phantom second page. Any assistance here. Thanks.

Hi,

Seems strange if it flows within one page that it doesn't flow across to a second one.  Is this a form you imported from a PDF or Word document or one made from scratch?  Can you add a screen shot of the form hierarchy, the fields that are expanding over the page can't be on the master page.

Regards

Bruce

Here is the screenshot of the hierarchy. I realize there are a number of subforms but that is because there are a number of areas that require the document to flow and push down the information as those boxes/questions are answered. Thanks for the help.

So isn't the problem I thought it might have been, I guess you have checked a number of times that each one of those subforms has the Flowed and allow page break options set.

I notice you have Page1 selected, this has an option to restrict page occurrences as does it's parent "(Master Pages)"

Maybe a screen shot of the problem will help us understand.

Can you share this form?  If so, upload it to a file share site (Google Docs, DropBox, ...) and post a link to it in this thread.

See if that helped. I am not sure if I shared it correctly. Just message me if it came through. thanks

Hi,

You still had some subforms that were positioned, including the top one.  To get the flowed content happening all the subforms above the content need to be flowed.

This means you need to use the margins to maintain the layout you had.

Have a look at this updated version

Hey would you know how to remove the link in my post and your post so that my file is not publicly shared? Or is there a way to make this convo private?

Hey is there a way to remove the shared link in my post and your post so that my file remains private? Is there a way to make this question/post private possibly?

Not that I know of unless you get a delete button as the one who asked the question. I have deleted the file from my file share so at least the link wont work.
