Pad > Apply Pad

Use the Apply Pad property to specify when to apply the pad character. Choose a value from the drop-down list.

Fixed Group
Apply the pad characters only when the item appears in a fixed group.
Any Context
Apply the pad characters when the item appears in any context.

Each item in a fixed group must be padded to a fixed size or have the same value for the minimum and maximum content size.

For example, suppose the item Name has a space pad character with this value:

Mary<sp><sp>

If the Apply Pad property is Fixed Group, the two spaces at the end are treated as pad characters only when the item appears in a fixed group. If the Apply Pad property is Any Context, then the spaces are always treated as pad characters.

Each item in a fixed group must be padded to a fixed size or have the same value for the minimum and maximum content size.
