guidePagination - overview

The pagination feature for CKEditor 5 allows you to see where the page breaks would be after the document is exported to PDF or Word. It helps ensure the file will generate and print correctly with the identical page structure that the user sees in the WYSIWYG editor.

The feature shows you the the page numbering as well as the total number of pages in the document. It also introduces a dedicated toolbar that allows the user to easily go to the next or previous page of the document or jump straight to a selected page.

The pagination feature is complementary to both the export to PDF and export to Word features, providing proper output every time. It also respects page breaks inserted by the user with the page break feature.

# Trial limitations

Please note that the trial version of this plugin, while keeping all the functions, only allows for limited use.

When used in the trial mode, the pagination plugin allows to conduct about half a thousand operations within the editor, while retaining full functionality. Once this limit is reached, the editor goes into read-only mode. An error message will then be produced, informing the user that the trial has reached its limit.

The functionality may be restored by reloading the editor instance (remember to save the content as refreshing will clear all the data).

# Using the pagination feature

Please refer to the Quick start guide for information on how to start using the pagination feature in your CKEditor 5 WYSIWYG editor build.
