    Aside from what you might think of as the origin placement, Gendata rules are not run during Entry operations. As such, you are not able to do what you describe in versions before 12.2. Starting in 12.2, you still can't execute Gendata rules, however there is a newly supported feature when DAL adds a section that will look for the existence of the CanSplitImage rule and assigns an internal attribute that will allow the section to split during entry. This isn't the same as running the rule, but the net effect should be acceptable. (At some point in the future, perhaps this internal attribute will become something you can just set when adding the section on the form and you won't have to specify the CanSplitImage rule at all - for Batch or Entry. That would be great.) In the meantime, if you are not using 12.2, your only option is to break your section up into smaller section components and add them separately. That should help minimize unused space on the page when something doesn't fit.
