Basics Usage

The XF Designer consists of the following important elements:
1. The document: This shows the design of the document and can be edited directly similar to a word processing tool
2. Navigation bar: Shows the currently selected element/section in the document and lets you navigate to an element in an easier way than using the 1 if the element has a small or no visible space.
3. Data source: You can browse and drag and drop data from the data source on to the document. Here you can also see the page layout and page sets. To see the page sets check the "Pagination" option in View→Show/Hide.
4. Properties pane: Detailed properties for the selected element in 1 or 2
5. Ribbon menu

One of the first things you probably want to do is set up the page layout and create a header and footer. This is done in the Page Layout ribbon. You can also use a building block to create the same header/footer in multiple reports.
