I would like to understand if there are any recommended ways of including a revision and approval table at the start of a published PDF - output from a bookmap?
It is important that we include the revision and approval details after the cover page of our documents; however, so far my attempts have had limited success.
The bookmaps include a cover page, TOC, list of tables, and list of figures; the latter three are all styled with the same header and footers.
Ideally some, or all, of the <bookmeta> metadata could be reused in the revision and approval tables, but reusing some of the terms (e.g. Author, current revision) doesn't seem to be possible?
The more manual method I am currently attempting is to insert a topic, containing the revision history tables, in to the <frontmatter> of each bookmap, before the TOC etc. Revision details are manually entered into the tables prior to running the PDF transformation. This has two main issues I am yet to overcome:
- The tables are numbered so the first tables in the main document start from Table 3. Is it possible to overlook these tables in the table numbering?
- The page is not styled in a similar manner to the other pages of the document - the header, footer is missing. I am not sure how to apply the same styling rules to this topic, in the customised CSS?
