In print and online media, pagination is the technical conversion of text, headlines, graphics, photos
, tables and captions into a designed page. The pagination is based on a pagination scheme. This is a previously developed grid concept that divides the page to be paginated into columns. In addition, special areas are provided for headlines, column titles, page nomenclature or pagination.
Paginationinvolves arranging the typographically prepared texts and graphics into a layout.
Electronic pagination is supported by pagination programs and in desktop publishing (DTP). These display the paginated pages as they will later appear in print or as electronic pages.
