Subject RE: First page (distinct) and next following page - contents flowing on every page including first
Date Mon, 04 Jun 2012 13:18:06 GMT
Hello,

I am on my phone at the moment so this message will be just a description of what you need
to do. If someone hasn't helped you further by the time I get home I will attach some examples.

You will need two page definitions which you can call something like First any Other. For
each of those pages you can define a region-before which points to  static regions which define
Text1 and Text2 respectively.

You will need to define a page sequence with a single-page-sequence-master pointing to First
and the repeatable pointing to the Other reference.

Finally, to have a multi-column page with the content, you can specify a column-count property
in the region-body in each page definition.

If you're not understanding of what I said or how to do it. If no-one else has stepped in,
I'll post an example with XSLT when I get back in a couple of hours.

Regards,

Robert Meyer
