      • New Exhibit – With Title includes a title cell ON the page itself
      • New Exhibit – No Title has no title ON the page itself
      • New Exhibit – No Border is a blank page

ClickFORMS automatically inserts the PDF pages into their own report pages if one of the three options for New Exhibit is selected.

The system default is for All Pages to be inserted into a (separate) New Exhibit – With Title page.

This is the most common method of inserting PDFs into a ClickFORMS report because it is the easiest and most efficient method.

The remaining option for insertion into a Selected Exhibit Cell requires the user to first manually insert a page into the report with the cursor placed into the destination cell. The destination cell is either a photo/image cell or an exhibit cell.
The number of pages in the original PDF is displayed at the bottom of the window.
