I use location to indicate which binder my dvd is in and I got this report that I like which prints the show name, genre, location and slot number in a quick simple manner - but while I can sort by location, I don't know how to get the report to start a new page for each binder. Hence page breaking on location question.  I've looked in report creation and didn't see anything that allowed me to do that task.

Thanks,

There is no page break marker in the report editor.

You could:

1. Put equal number of DVDs into each binder and use (create) a report with that number of DVDs per page.
2. Flag the DVDs of one binder and use any report with option "Flagged entries only" for each binder.
Don't confuse while the film is playing with when the film is played. [Ken Cole, DVD Profiler Architect]

I don't think our good, old (cough, cough) Report Editor can handle this. 

If you do that regularly I would suggest using tags for the binders. E.g.:
Binders
|- Binder 1
|- Binder 2
etc
Now sort by location, filter on tag "Binder 1", print, filter on tag "Binder 2", print ... and so on.

PS Create, edit and set Tags in case you don't already know hot to use them.

Automatic page breaking based on the current sort is coming in the next version, along with custom page sizes and landscape page orientation.
