Thanks for the reply. I am relatively new to Reportlab. I would highly
appreciate it if you can provide some more information about the
approach you described .
As I understand, the beforeDrawPage method is called indirectly through
the build() method whenever a flowable spills into a new page or if we
explicity call a PageBreak() method. Is this correct?
