Conditional Breaks

Some of you have requested a sample of the new Conditional Breaks feature in Designer 7.1.

This feature allows you to set conditions, based on imported data, which determine when breaks should occur.

For example, you may have data that you want to list by category and every time the category changes, you’d like to start the new category on a new page. Or, you may have a separator that you want to insert in between sets of data on your form.

I’ve created a little sample which demonstrates the Conditional Breaks feature by listing some movie data where each time the category changes, a new page starts. Don’t forget to import the data.xml file into the form when you open it in Acrobat.
