Multi-page is a special layout construct to accomodate objects that can grow across page boundaries. Examples include Straight tables and Pivot tables. Other objects (for example text boxes, gauges, pie charts, list boxes, buttons etc.) aren't expected to grow outside of their alotted space. .
A multi-page allows only one object to be present on the first page. Putting a text box on a multi-page makes no sense. Putting a pivot table on a multi-page will claim all space and will fill as many pages as necessary.
