Notes on Creating Cover Pages

A Cover Page template defines the style, fields and format of a document report front cover that a user can choose to apply to any kind of document report they are generating, in which case the Cover Page styles override any styles of the same name defined in the report template or Normal.rtf file.

The simplest way to create a new Cover Page is to copy one of the system-provided files (for portrait output or for landscape output) or another custom Cover Page Contents, and edit the style definitions in the copy. However, you can create a Cover Page from scratch if you wish; this would be initially derived from the Normal.rtf file.

Access     View | Resources > Document Generation > User Templates | right-click on Cover Pages | Create Document Template
View | Resources > Document Generation > System Templates > Cover Pages | right-click on <cover page name> | Copy Document Template
Package | Documentation | Document Templates: dtdnew
You can also create a Cover Page within the Templates tab of the Generate Documentation dialog

In each of these cases, you create the new Cover Page template file through the New Document Template dialog, and edit the styles in the Document Template Designer  using the Styles, Special Text and Table of Contents facilities.
