Most people us Paragraphs within the Platypus framework where you have
more than one page (if needed) and it handles the downwards flow for
you. Please review that chapter of the user guide and the examples
beginning with tests/test_platypus_*.py

If you just want a few flowing paragraphs on a mostly-statically-drawn
page, you can create a Frame object, add content using addFromList,
and draw that, and it will work top-down.

Best Regards,
