About Inserting Advanced-Reports Content

The Insert button on the reports toolbar allows you to add content to your reports, including visualizations, page breaks, headers and footers.

Piped Text

Piped Text reduces repeatable reporting tasks such as inserting question text or total number of respondents directly from the source project. Instead of inserting elements that otherwise need to be re-inserted or updated every reporting cycle into a new report, the report creator can easily insert a variable to represent the data and then use the variable in place of the element in the report.

  4. Determine the image’s position relative to the margins around it.
  5. Determine the image’s margins.

See the examples below for more information on image position.


The image reverts to its natural dimensions within the margins. If you need to resize an image without stretching it, this is the best option.

Stretch the image to fit the margins.

Repeat the image within the margins. This option looks especially nice for minimalist images or patterns.

Qtip: If the image is larger than the space you’re trying to fit it into, it won’t have a chance to repeat.

Blank Spaces

Click Insert and choose Blank Space to insert a blank space at the bottom of the page you’re working on.

Blank Space option in the Insert dropdown

Blank spaces do exactly what it sounds like: they allow you to create blank spaces between your visualizations. They can be resized and dragged around the page as necessary.

Click Insert and choose Divider to insert a dividing line at the bottom of the page you’re working on.

Divider option in the Insert menu

There are several option for customizing your dividers.

  • Style: The tear drop icon allows you to adjust the color of the divider. The Number selector lets you choose the thickness, in pixels, of the line.
  • Margin: Adjust the margin around the divider.

Page Breaks & Deleting Pages

Pages are created automatically when you add visualizations and insert other content. Once a page runs out of room, a new one is automatically created. However, you can also manually insert pages.

Attention: For the best performance, we recommend trying to keep your report below 30 pages.

Click Insert and choose Page Break to insert a page break at the bottom of the page you’re working on.
