Creating a repeating region in a template

Creating a repeating region in a template

Repeating regions enable template users to duplicate a specified region in a template as often as desired. A repeating region is not an editable region.

To make content in a repeating region editable (for example, to allow a user to enter text in a table cell in a template-based document), you must insert an editable region in the repeating region (see Inserting an editable region).

For information about creating an editable repeating table, see Inserting a repeating table.

To insert a repeating region in a template:

  1. In the Document window, do one of the following:
    • Select the text or content you want to set as a repeating region.
    • Place the insertion point in the document where you want to insert the repeating region.
  2. Do one of the following, to create a repeating region:
    • Select Insert > Template Objects > Repeating Region.
    • Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Macintosh), then select Templates > New Repeating Region.
    • In the Common category of the Insert bar, click the arrow on the Templates button, then select Repeating Region.

      This is a picture of the feature being described.

    The New Repeating Region dialog box appears.

  3. In the Name text box, enter a unique name for the template region. (You cannot use the same name for more than one repeating region in a template.)
  4. Click OK.

    The repeating region is inserted in the template.
