Keeping Paragraphs Together

I have been trawling through our documentation lately. Looking for something else I came across something that I have been asked for lately. The need to keep paragraphs of text together!

This functionality was actually delivered back in 10.1.3.3.3, here is Leslie's prose ...

Support for "Keep Paragraph with the Next Paragraph"

The RTF standard includes a command that enables you to "keep a paragraph with the next paragraph." This command prevents a page break between the paragraph for which it is enabled and the following (or next) paragraph.

To enable "keep paragraph with the next paragraph" in Microsoft Word:

  • Select the paragraphs you want to keep together on a page.
  • From the Format menu, select Paragraph, and then click the Line and Page Breaks tab.
  • Select the Keep with Next box.

Keep Paragraph Intact

The RTF standard includes a command that enables you to keep all the lines of a paragraph together ("keep paragraph intact") and prevent the paragraph from breaking across pages.

To enable "keep paragraph intact" in Microsoft Word:

  • From the Format menu, select Paragraph, and then select the Line and Page Breaks tab.
  • Deselect the Keep lines together check box.

So now you know ...

    this works for me when I'm doing previewing a PDF through MS Word... but it doesn't work through the API in my deployed application.
    Here are the versions of the JARs I'm using:
    The oracle ojdbc jar is 10.2.0.3.0
    The oracle.apps.xdo.core is 5.6.0
    Are these the latest?

    I can't get this to work (and I'm using 10.1.3.4) - any advice?

    Dishonest hurts. It hurts the one that’s being cheated on, and consider it or not, it hurts the cheater. The cheater has to cover what he’s doing, probably has to lie to keep it a secret and has to feel the guilt that goes with it.

    How about groups? How can you keep groups together? That's the million dollar question!
