Overview

Every compoment has left and upper position, width and length. Some components have more specific features available.

Text

This can be used for most kind of cases, where you need any text in your page. You can insert fields and formulas with special syntax. Read about formulas here.

Table

Read separate article about tables here.

Chart

Chart needs numeric source for generating data (data field property), and once it's selected, x-axis and y-axis, what represent data source for axis.

You can select from many types of charts. Possible charts are:

  • horisontal+bar
  • line
  • scatter
  • radar
  • exploded+pie
  • doughnut

Container

There's separate page here.

Image

You can use image for inserting logos from select local file or for signatures or from data field, when some input gives image value as base64 value. All signatures are forwarded to Document Editor as base64 value. Here is example of two of them, one random ugly logo and signature:

Header and footer

Headers and footers are sticked to every page, up and down, and you can place other components into it. If you want to increase area, where they should fit, open page properties and make indents smaller.

If your document has multiple pages, and you want to make headers and footers repeat on every page, insert new pages from right-click on current page - insert page, not from menu - insert - page. First one keeps same layout, last one starts new layout.

Checkbox, Radio

Main principle for them is to use proper formula to make each one of them checked correctly. Details about it are in separate page.
