Insert page breaks when the text exceeds the first page Follow

I have to create a handling unit label.
The label has a header and an unknown number of Items "lines".
How to force a page break when there are more Items then can be printed on the first label, so the printing continues on the next label.
Like you can do in a word document.

Same problem here.

Our customer would like to have several "items" printed on the label. If they don't fit on the first label, it should continue on the next label. Instead it just cuts off the items, that don't fit on the label.

Are the "items" all in one field on the label and how is this data populated?

I can think of one way you could do it, there may others, but need to know a bit more information first.

Did anyone found a solution to this?  I am having the exact same issue and tried looking at the Page Setup-->Media Handling with Page Break.  This does nothing no matter what option I select.  I would think this would be something easy that can be done with Bartender, but cannot find any information.  My other solution is using Crystal Report or SSRS which can do this fairly easily with page break.  However, my company want to use bartender for all their labeling, so kind of stuck.

Difficult to provide a solution if the request for more information goes unanswered!

Peter - I have a similar issue, and on my label it is one particular field that may overflow.

 

The record has 5 fields - 1 record per output file. The last field in the record is a detail list. If it overflows, I need the overflow to print on another label. 

Ideally, that "overflow" label will reprint the other fields again, and just continue with this field where it leaves off. We have BarTender version 10.1.

I dont think that is possible in 10.1 unless you autosized the field and so the text shrinks to fit etc. 

Multiple templates or layers with conditional printing could get round this too, but I cant remember if these were in 10.1 or started in 2016 but I do know they were edition specific options (Automation and above?).

With this, if you know the final field can only handle 150 characters you could use truncation to only include 150 on the top layer whilst the second layer would start printing from character 151 with some form of conditional printing option required (such as a VB field that counts the characters and says Yes or No depending on the count. 

2019 has some more options too and I am not sure if you have seen this and if it would help
