A Master is a template which may be used as a Report’s background. Masters in Report work very much like themes in PowerPoint or Google Slides. Only Widgets Image, Shape and Text are available during the creation of a Master.
Creating a Master
To create a Master:
- Hit the “Display” tab at the Page level
- Hit “Select a master” and click on “Add one” to create a new one
- You will then be in front of a blank Page where you can use Shape, Image and Text Widgets
- Once finished, you can go back to your Page
Note that Text Widgets can be dynamic by using variables, for example to define titles, dates and indexes.
Editing a Master
You can edit your Master from the Library or from the Display tab at the Page level. Note that all your changes will impact all the Pages using your Master.
