I want to make a document that contains a synopsis of events, like
YEAR HISTORY CULTURE SCIENCE 1770 History para- culture para- science para- graph history graph culture graph science paragraph. paragraph cult- paragraph sci- re paragraph. ence paragraph History para- science para- graph history culture para- graph science paragraph his- graph culture paragraph. tory paragraph paragraph History para- graph. 1771 History para- culture para- science para- graph history graph culture graph science paragraph... paragraph ... ence ...
I tried to use a
longtable to achieve such a result, but run into the problem that
longtables do not allow page breaks within cells, but only inbetween rows. In my example, page breaks are only possible between the 1770 and 1771 row, but not for example, if one of the rows itself becomes too long for one page.
The text of the paragraphs comes from a database and is automatically assembled. So manual adjustments are not an option.
Exists there any alternative for
longtables that allows page breaks inside a row, or is there any other way to achieve such a layout without using tables?
