Standard Paragraph Attributes

In the Standard attribute group, you find the general attributes that can be defined in paragraph formats:

Precise explanation of your paragraph tag, so that the user can immediately identify it.

Amount of space between the paragraph and the left or right border of the form window.

Indent of the first line of a paragraph. If the value is positive, it is indented to the right, if it is negative, it is indented to the left.

If you specify a negative value, then you must place the minus sign after the number: 1- .

Space before and space after control the amount of space between paragraphs. The actual space between paragraphs results from the space after the preceding paragraph and the space before the following paragraph.

Alignment of a paragraph.









Spacing between the lines. The default value is 1 line; the LPI value (lines per inch) in the header data is used to calculate the line spacing.

Suppression of blank lines. You can control whether the blank lines of a paragraph should be suppressed in the printout or not:

No entry

blank lines not suppressed


blank lines suppressed

Cohesion of a paragraph. It is possible to determine whether or not a paragraph can be divided by a page break.

No entry

no page protection (default)


all lines of the paragraph are on one page

Cohesion of two adjacent paragraphs. Here you can define whether the subsequent paragraph should begin on the same page (that is, at least the first line of the subsequent paragraph must be on the same page).

No entry

subsequent paragraph is output on the same page or the next page, depending on the amount of space (default)


subsequent paragraph begins on the same page
