Resizing the catalog merge area changes the layout and repetition of records on the merged pages

You can change the layout and repetition of records in your merged pages by moving or resizing the catalog merge area on the catalog merge template page.

The size and position of the catalog merge area on the catalog merge template page determine how records will display in your merged publication pages.

You can change how records repeat in your merged pages by resizing or moving the catalog merge area in your catalog merge template. Publisher displays text at the top of the catalog merge area that shows the number of times that the catalog merge area will repeat both down and across each page in your final merged pages.

Decrease the repetition of the catalog merge area

If you make the catalog merge area larger or if you move it toward the right of the page, you will decrease the number of records that display per page when you complete the merge. If the catalog merge area is very large in relation to the overall size of the page, the catalog merge area may appear only once per page in your merged pages.

Increase the repetition of the catalog merge area

If you make the catalog merge area smaller, you will increase the number of records that display per page in your merged pages.

When resizing or moving the catalog merge area, it is a good idea to think about the amount of information in the records in your data source and the actual page size of your merged publication pages. You should make sure that the catalog merge area is large enough to display the information that it will contain.
