The Break is a layout element that breaks either a MiniPage (creating a page break) or a Paragraph (creating a new line.)

Break (Break type) is found in the Propagating Containers group in the Tool Box view.


A propagating element generates an extra copy when that element is full. Extra content overflows to the copy.

With a Mini Page, it breaks the current MiniPage (in which it resides) and creates a new clone of it, to pursue data streaming. If the Mini Page occupies the report page, you would insert a Break element at the point you wish for a page break.

With a Paragraph, it inserts a new line between the Paragraph Text elements.
