Designer - mirrored layout when printing odd/even pages

Post by Phil » Wed Aug 15, 2012 09:13

I'm new to Diving Log 5,0 - so please forgive me if this is a bit trivial.

I normally print my dives on both sides of each leaf of paper. Is there an easy way to offset the right margin when printing odd pages and offset the left margin when printing even pages (like e.g. the "mirrored" option in Word's page layout menu)?

Alternatively/additionally, is it possible in Designer to create two different pages for each dive (e.g. "front" with detailed info and "back" with profile and pictures)?

Thanks

Phil

Ok, I've found a way to deal with my first question (i.e. creating mirrored pages). I'll post it here in case it can help anyone else.

1. In designer, double-click "Project" in the Objects window
2. Under Layout Definition, select Horizontal Offset and add: Cond(even(LogNumber),10,0)

All the best

Phil
