Page Layout

Page layout involves deciding the location of text and images in your documents. UltraDev provides you with an easy way to create the page layout by using layout tables. Layout tables give you more flexibility in creating complex page layouts, which is not possible by using normal tables. Tables were originally intended to display tabular data. Therefore, they are not suited well for creating a page layout. However, layout tables give you a better control over laying out a page than normal tables. For example, when you use normal tables, it is not possible to design cells with unequal heights within a row. When you specify the height of a particular cell, the heights of the other cells in that row also change according to the height of the changed cell. But, when you create layout tables, specifying the height for a particular layout cell does not affect the height of other layout cells. Therefore, you have more flexibility in designing complex tabular structures when you use layout tables instead of normal tables. Using layout tables, you can position elements in your document as you do using a table. However, layout tables save you from the common problems associated with creating tables for page layout. You can easily adjust cell widths, move cells, and nest tables by using layout tables.

After you create your page layout in the Layout view, you can switch to the Standard view to insert layers.
