Page BackgroundsDictates if a background will be used in the template. The options are 'None', 'Same on All Pages', or 'Different on Page 1'.

'Different on Page 1' is useful for complex layouts where boxes or borders are used. The background on page 1 can be different from the backgrounds on te other pages, to make allowances for the invoice header or logo.

Each Extra item is shown following the Session it applies to.

Show Session FooterShould a section be displayed at the end of each Session. This is useful for items such as a total for the Session, the Session Public Note, Employer Pension Contribution etc.
Margin TopThe distance from the top of the page to the top margin.

This value is only used on multi-page invoices. When a new page is started, this is the position that the first Session on the page will be displayed.

Margin BottomThe distance in millimetres from the bottom of the page to the bottom margin.

Before a new Session or Extra is printed on the page, a check is made to see if there is enough space before the bottom margin is reached. If the available space is not enough, a new page is started.

This calculation does not take into account label resizing, so a label may expand over the bottom margin.

Margin LeftThe distance in millimetres from left edge of the page to the left margin.

This does not affect the positioning of objects. It just draws a line on the template when designing the invoice to assist in aligning objects.

Margin RightThe distance in millimetres from the right edge of the page to the right margin.
