Resolve issue where the use of 'Page Header' logic in the 'At Start of Page' section causes Workcenter to hang in EngageOne and DOC1 Designer

Product Feature: Installation / Upgrade

Issue

In "at start of page" logic within the page setup of Designer, the use of a page header item causes the Workcenter to hang when selected.

Cause

The use of presentation items in either "at start of page" is not permitted in later versions of Series 5, and all versions of Series 6.

Resolution

UPDATED: November 9, 2017
In earlier version of Series 5, this was permitted, but was withdrawn because it caused unpredictable behavior.  If you have an item in this area that contains presentation objects, then you cannot select or modify these, the only option is to delete them, and establish another method to achieve the result required.

At Start of Page should only be used for creating/updating variables, and this is specified in the documentation:

At Start of Page is executed once the default header/footer logic is complete.

It can be used for any processing to be performed only at the start of a page such as updating a variable.

Note that this should contain logic only; so Active Content that produces physical content should not be included.


In the "at end of page" section, it is possible to add some physical content, provided it is contained in a fixed anchor text box, which again is specified in the documentation:

At End of Page is executed when a page in a document is about to end.

It can be used for any processing to be performed only at the end of a page such as incrementing counters.

Note that this is primarily for logic – see note above – although you may include additional content on the current page provided it is included in a fixed anchor text box.
