I am using Airtable for project management. I am trying to shift some of our proposal generation to Airtable and see some promise with the Page Designer Feature.

Just wondering – is it possible to generate multiple pages from a single record? Basically, for each job, I have several components that take up most of a sheet of paper. I need to have a summary table of work to be completed below that, along with terms and conditions.

Our current proposals are 6 pages long using Microsoft Word

Any thoughts on how to accomplish this?

Regarding #3, “allow fields to resize”, we need the sections to grow and shrink with the number and size of our lists. Sub-totals would also be very nice.
We want to be able to do our invoices and proposals through the Report Block, but the length of our documents varies a lot.
Just having multi-page or a “continuous” option with a .docx download would solve most of our problems - we can edit out the white space if we must.

So discouraging to work all the way through setting up related tables only to run right in to this silly page length problem in Page Designer.

I have really enjoyed learning AirTable and think it is going to be great for us but the page length problem pretty much messes it up – our whole purpose was creating an invoicing application but we have too many line items per customer to fit on one page.

I’m trying to make multi-page contracts and this is a much needed feature.

Hi Stefanie_Van_Steelan

I got Page Designer Block to print multiple records (15) on 1 page by using this method:
8 columns in total: 2 regular & 6 within a grid.

In settings (gear icon)
Table: Food Log
Record Size: Custom
Width (PX): 950
Height (PX): 80
"This affects how much area the record has to print on, like ‘mini pages’.

Print: Records in a specific view
Which view?: Calories by Week
Record Layout: In a Grid
Record Padding: 10
Paper size: (8.5 x 11 in)
Paper orientation: Portrait
Page Margin (PX): 1

[ My printer settings ] Canon MG7520
Papersize: 8.5" x 11" 22 x 28 cm
Margins: custom
Scale: 65
Options: Headers & Footers
Left Margin: 1"
Top Margin: 0.5"
Right Margin: 0"
Bottom Margin: 0"

Hope this works for you, if not maybe it will give Airtable staff a place to start looking.

All The Best,

Pablo Rios
