Showing a Terms and Conditions on the back of the first page only

The case we deal here is the one where we add Terms and Conditions page only in the back of the first page, regardless of the number of pages in the overflow. We will use a duplex document but be careful that the line items do not overflow into the Terms and Conditions page.

Note: To give just the steps of our how to, we assume that we will start with an existing invoice Print context that contains one section Section 1 and master pages applied to the different document sheets

Steps

To achieve this we use multiple master pages: one for the overflow, one for the T&C. The objectives of the master pages are:

  • Used for elements that need to be repeated across pages
  • Or, used for elements that appear on a specific sheet position

Thus, in our case we create a new master page that contains the Terms and Conditions page

  1. Open the existing invoice print template
  2. Create New Master Page by right clicking on Master pages
  3. A new master page is created. Rename it by right clicking on it. enter the name e.g. Terms&Conditions
  4. Doucle click on Terms&Conditions master page. The main editor is displayed.
  5. Insert an absolute positioned box in the main editor and set its geometry properties.
  6. Type the terms and conditions text in the box (or, use a PDF with your existing T&C!)
  7. Toggle back to the Section 1
  8. Right click on the Section 1 and select Sheet configuration. The Print section properties window is open directly on the Sheet configuration options.
  9. Check Duplex option. Thus, we note that Master Page Back is enabled. In our case, we select a master page to use only in the back of the First Sheet and the Single Sheet. The Master Page Back is kept to None or the first (existing) Master Page for all other sheets.
  10. So, select Terms&Conditions in Master Page Back in First Sheet and Single Sheet
  11. Important! be sure that Front only is selected in the Allow content on in First Sheet and Single Sheet. Otherwise, the detail table overflows into the Terms&Conditions page
  12. Click OK
  13. Switch to Preview mode and browse through the records to see that the Terms&Conditions page appears only in the back of the first sheet of the document and not in the overflowing pages.
