I'll try again (-:
I have a document that generates very nicely - It consists of multiple
sections which have the same formatting - most sections cover several
pages, within each sections are items that are kept together. Each
section starts on a new page to aid the reader in locating the
information they require. This all works, the pagination is perfect,
keep-together does exactly what is needed, (I have page numbering, odd
and even page headers and footers, and even a page which switches from 1
column to two for a nice toc/index). The easy stuff I've more or less
got nailed (-: I will definitely have it nailed after I've done the next
document (same theory, more complex formatting rules).
Now the challenge:
When the document is generated there is usually a large chunk of blank
white space on the last page of each section - this is to be expected as
there is a page break before a section starts. It would be nice if I
could stick something into that white space when - and only when - there
is sufficient space for it to fit (for extra credit one would fit one of
a choice of somethings depending on the size of the available space).
Which was, I thought, fairly well expressed by:
