Layout basics

A layout defines a number of rectangular areas on the page into which content is assembled. The boundaries of these areas control the arrangement of content as described in “Content assembly”.

The layout defines a number of different formats or page types. Each page type can define the number of columns on the page, page orientation, the position of headers and footers and so on. TopLeaf allows you to use multiple page types on an output page, so for example it is possible to have both single and double column material on a page.

Page types are selected by setting a mapping property.
