Hello,

In what output format do you want to display multi-column pages? How do you plan to select between normal pages and multi-column pages? Do you want to split the output page in multiple columns and flow the content of a topic in the columns in order from the left column and advancing to the right as the columns are filled? Should the next topics continue in the last column with the content of the current topic, immediately after the current topic is ended? Or should each topic start on a new page, from the beginning of the left column on the page?

Please can you give an example of the input XML content and how you want to display that content in the output?


Regards,
Sorin

Hello,

I have to manage pages with multicolumn and single column dita and I do not know how to manage, perhaps with an attribute on the topic that would indicate how to handle the content, is it possible? For filling multicolumn, from top to bottom and left to right. The type of page is landscape

thank you

Do you mean in Author mode, when you edit the DITA topics? Or in an output format like PDF or XHTML? It is not the same thing, different settings are needed, so the answer for this is important.
