How to implement keep-with-next and keep-with-previous

Post by dpksaini89 » Fri Apr 06, 2018 8:05 am

I have tried with procedures mentioned in
https://github.com/dita-ot/dita-ot/issues/1878
and
https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/ ... ined3.html

But unable to find right instruction on how to implement keep-with-next and keep-with-previous to customize pdf output.
I am using <oXygen/> XML Editor 20.0, build 2018031511

Please direct me to right instructions page.

Thanks

Hi,

Those particular instructions are only for implementing forced page breaks.
You seem to want more, maybe you could consider reading the DITA For Print book:

https://xmlpress.net/publications/dita/dita-for-print/

or join the Yahoo Groups DITA Users list, and ask there, giving more details, a small DITA sample and how you want the PDF output to look like.

Here i wish to apply 'keep with next' feature on the task step, so that it always accompanies it's supporting illustration.

We have accomplished what you are trying to do by applying an attribute to the steps.step attribute set in the task-elements-attr.xml file.

Add the attribute keep-together.within-page as shown below.

Code: Select all

    <xsl:attribute-set name="steps.step" use-attribute-sets="ol.li">
<xsl:attribute name="space-after">3pt</xsl:attribute>
<xsl:attribute name="space-before">3pt</xsl:attribute>
<xsl:attribute name="keep-together.within-page">always</xsl:attribute>
Hope this helps.

Can it be implemented for topics also?

If you use paragraphs in your topic files, you can apply the same attribute to paragraphs in the file commons-attr.xsl.

Code: Select all

  <xsl:attribute-set name="p" use-attribute-sets="common.block">
<xsl:attribute name="text-indent">0em</xsl:attribute>
<xsl:attribute name="keep-together.within-page">always</xsl:attribute>
</xsl:attribute-set>

(This attribute is also in the topic-attr.xsl file, but the commons-attr.xsl file covers all file types so I prefer to set it there.)

I did not understood how to implement this in topics with ordered list.
Can you explain step-by-step how to do it.
Thanks

Hi,

This thread is about customizing PDF produced using XSL-FO.
You are currently using the new way to produce PDF using CSS. Maybe you can write a new post in which you can explain your problem, give maybe a small DITA example and tell us how you would expect the output PDF styled using CSS to look like.
Maybe you could also read this topic:

https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/ ... aking.html

which explains how the CSS "page-break-inside" property can be used to avoid page breaks inside certain elements.
