Hi Jeremy,
I may have a programmer I can assign to help implement flow-maps in FOP if
it's what I'm looking for (depending on the learning curve).
However, after looking at the examples, I'm not sure that's what I'm looking
for. Basically, I am usually generating five one page documents merged into
one PDF (so it's five pages, but they are all separate). Each of these pages
is separated into three parts, split almost evenly vertically down the page.
Sometimes one of these three regions would overflow. If the top region of
page 3 overflowed, I'd want page 4 to be just be the overflowed text. I
wouldn't want it to print otherwise. Currently, I have three
block-containers on the page.
