Vertical align

The Vertical align property controls the way excess vertical space is distributed on a page that ends at a forced page or leaf break.

When a forced page or leaf break occurs, TopLeaf allocates any remaining data content to the page. If there is any unallocated space remaining in the page data area, you can indicate where you would like that vertical space distributed.

The options are:

  • Top — position the data content at the top of the page data area. This is the default.

  • Center — vertically center the data content within the page data area.

  • Bottom — position the data content at the bottom of the page data area.

  • Spread — position the data content at the top of the page data area, with the excess vertical space distributed between the lines, paragraphs and segments of the page data content, provided that the total excess space does not exceed the limit set by the <page-properties> command.

Note that the specified vertical alignment applies only to the page on which the forced page or leaf break occurs.
