    Default Reclaiming Page Space...

    I have tried with this but I do need some pointers.

    Three objects on a page x,y,z - vertical alignment - I delete y - how do I reclaim the page space it was occupying ?

    My situation is more complex than that but a solution to that other than selecting z and moving it up would help.

    Many Thanks

    John

    John, you can only do this if z is Auto-fit to page and set to Bottom.
    You then reduce the page height.

    John - I am a visual person and I have absolutely NO idea what you are asking. Can you post a visual example of what you are asking about?

    Appreciate your time - as you may have guessed I have don't just have the 3 I have 20 + objects, items for sale, on the page -If I sell the middle one....

    I have just realised that as I list in chronological order I may need to enter one in the middle - what a muddle !

    I am converting an old site I did in Dreamweaver, years ago, that I listed products in a table - then it was easy to add and delete.

    Hi, see www.gamesetal.net/gea - when you scroll down you will see the blank space.

    Much appreciate your time and any assistance you can give.

    Hi John, perhaps this will help. There is a bug using this method but it should be alright to use. I'll see if the devs can chase the bug down in another thread.

    I ran through this quickly so as not to delay a 'thank you' to you - I pretty sure the message came through by your patient explanation - but I will sit down and go through more thoroughly.

    I am overawed that someone could spend 30 minutes of their time to assist me - I do offer my sincere thanks to you.

    Best Wishes, John

    My pleasure John. I was also helping myself as I learned how to do this should i ever need to do similar in the future. I attach the xar file. Note there is a bug but it's workable.
