ADOBEFORMS: How to achieve back page printing for Terms & Conditions
The requirement is to print a data over several pages, and the data should only appear on Odd pages. The even pages (back) pages we should print “Terms and Conditions”. We take a simple case with single layout Master Page for data printing and so the layout will be same for all pages but 2 Master pages would be required for Terms & Condition to achieve the back page printing with Terms & Condition.
Now, we will create 3 Pages (1 for Layout & 2 for Terms) to achieve this with the following Pagination settings for each Master Page. The 3 pages are named as FIRST, TNC1, TNC2
1. FIRST (For Main Layout)
– Odd/Even: Odd (Front) Pages
– Placement: No Placement Restrictions
2. TNC1 (For Even pages)
– Odd/Even: Even (Back) Pages
– Placement: Last Page (in Page Set)
3. TNC2 (For Even pages)
– Odd/Even: Blank Pages
– Placement: —
But, in order to do the above settings we need to first make a setting in (Master Pages)
In the Page Set Tab select “Print on Both Sides”
The ‘Terms and conditions’ are located in the Pages TNC1 and TNC2 as a text and both pages are identical except that the TNC2 page doesn’t have the content area.
The table data that is printed is located on a normal page (flowed sub-form ITEM) in Design View with the below setting.
Pagination tab: Place = Following previous, and After = “Continue filling parent”. Overflow Go to Content Area “Main”
Main is the content area of “FIRST” Master Page
The rest of the form should be designed in Design View and in the Master Page for the Front Pages data and with the above settings in place for all the 3 Master Pages in the adobe form the final output will print the records on Front pages and Terms & Conditions on back pages of all pages.
Duplex printing or back page printing can be achieved for Adobe forms with above explanation.
