Insert Formfeed

Menu: Edit > Insert > Formfeed


Default Shortcut Key: none


Macro function: Formfeed()


The Insert Formfeed command can be used to quickly insert the formfeed, character value 12, at the current text cursor location.  The formfeed character is recognized by printers as a request to eject the current page and advance to (or load) a new page.


When printing a text file from within Boxer, a formfeed character can be placed in column one--or in the last position on a line--to indicate that a new page should begin at that point.  The footer of the page--if one has been defined--will be printed and the page will eject.  A formfeed in any other column will be ignored by Boxer's printing service.
