Formatted text in overflow area

    Goal: layout of a bill with attached payment slip. slip should always be printed at the bottom of the last page. (see attachment 1)
    My solution: I created a table and place the slip in the footer (see attachment 2). Repeat to Fill and overflow area on a second page. It works up until here.
    Issue: a new version of the payment slip needs do have formatted text and therefore I put a container in the footer and insert text fields (FormattedText).

    Problem: the html is not rendered when overflowing to the second page.

    Question: is there any way to render html in an overflow area? Do you have any other idea on how to layout this bill?

    Thank you very much.
    Greetings Dominic

    You can use the subreport instead of the container to achieve your requirements. Please refer to the attached report to implement the same.
