Footers: How to left align title, right align page number?

Postby Paul_N on Mon Oct 30, 2017 9:28 am

Hi, I'm using Flare 2018 R3 on Windows 10 to produce PDFs.

I want to create a footer in a page layout (.flpgl) doc that has a variable for the doc title on the left, and the page number variable on the right for right pages, and the other way around for left pages.

After much experimentation I can't achieve this seemingly simple task!

I tried splitting the footer into 2 columns, but the split doesn't appear when I press F2. The 902 page print based output guide is difficult to search too.

Can anyone tell me how to mix the justification of content in a footer?

Thanks

I use a table, then left-align the first cell and right-align the second. Seems to work ok.

Thanks. I did try with tables, but couldn't complete the task over 2 hours. Then after sleeping on it and starting from fresh this morning I got usable footers after about 20 mins with tables. Now onto making custom formatted ToCs & LoFs...

Edit the styles p.TOC1 etc and p.miniTOC1 etc if you want to make your TOCs and miniTOCs look pretty.

Trying to create a footer with the title (aligned left), page number (centered), and running header (aligned right)
I created a snippet with the table and formatted the text as above.
When I applied the page layout to a topic, the columns moved and the page number was not centered.
I tried using fixed column widths. That didn't seem to work either.
Any ideas?
