Pinned topic Override RPE's insertion of a next-page section break between templates

‏2011-12-05T20:06:18Z |
I am in a situation where I have a "front matter" template with particular headers and footers. Following that is several instances of a "body" template, each instance extracting data from different places in DOORS. These "body" templates all have the same header and footer, but it is a different header and footer than the "front matter" has. Some of the templates pull data from the middle of a paragraph. The problem is that RPE automatically inserts a new section break between each template due to the master page. Sometimes this section break appears in the middle of a paragraph!

Question: Is there a way to override RPE's insertion of a next-page section break between templates?

      Hi Bob3

      I have the above issue, RPE seems to add a section break after each different template (.dta) file uses from the specification (.dsx) file. This has the effect of re-starting the numbering in the table of contents. Hoping this is a setting somewhere to suppress?

    This behavior is hard coded in RPE and it cannot be changed from the outside. Please create an RFE for adding this capability to RPE.

    @Bob - I apologize for the 1 year late reply, the message slipped between the cracks.

      BUMP!

       

      With RPE 1.2.1 hotfix the behaviour is still there.

      Can I please encourage you to remove it? After all, RPE does provide the means to control where page breaks should be put using other means. I want them to appear where I want....

      I would be happy to raise an 'RFE'. Can you please point me to the web page where I can do this?

      Regards,

      Martin

          Thank you.

           

          For the moment let me please ask:

          Can you think about a way to remove the paragraph break with some script element or similarly?
