Space after link in PDF

Post by SathyaOX »

When we insert Xref in the source, it creates a space after the link in PDF. How can it be corrected?

Hi,

I could not reproduce the problem on my machine.

Maybe you have an :after element that adds an extra space. Could you send us your CSS Styles?
If you are not able to send them you can make a small example with the problem and then send us the out folder in order to debug it.

Kind regards,
Andrei

Yes, I will try that. And, I am using oXygen via IXIASOFT.

I have a snippet of an example. In the actual XML, there is no space after the xref element and a period. However, the PDF introduces a space.

Hi,

If you are publishing via the Ixiasoft server, then you are probably using the XSL-FO based PDF publishing and not our Oxygen specific CSS-based PDF publishing.
Possibly you also have your own PDF customization specific for your company created by Ixiasoft or by someone from your side.
I tested something like this on mi side:

Code: Select all

<p>ABC <xref keyref="care/fig_zph_z5l_r5b"/>.</p>
and I get a PDF looking like this:

Code: Select all

ABC Figure 1: Hello on page 3.
Notice that "on page 3" which appears by default with the XSL-FO based PDF output. In your case it does not appear, probably someone customized the PDF publishing with a plugin or customization folder on the server side and removed that "on page X" part but maybe they left an extra space after the link.

Great! I will find out who have access to the file and correct it.
I also noticed that the links provided in Hazard/Caution/Warning do not appear as links in output PDF. This is related to template?

Hi,
Do you mean links inside notes like this?

Code: Select all

<note type="warning"><xref keyref="care/fig_zph_z5l_r5b"/></note>
this works for me when publishing a DITA Map to PDF with the XSL-FO based plugin without any customization.
So if it does not work in general for you maybe again could be some kind of PDF customization related problem.

Particularly, in this example:
<hazardstatement>
<messagepanel>
<typeofhazard>Equipment Damage:</typeofhazard>
<howtoavoid>

</howtoavoid>
</messagepanel>
<hazardsymbol keyref="xxxxx" placement="inline"/>
</hazardstatement>

Hi,

The <hazardsymbol> DITA element specifies a graphic, an image:
https://www.oxygenxml.com/dita/1.3/spec ... ymbol.html

so it must keyref to an image, for example if I have in the DITA map this keydef:

Code: Select all

<keydef href="images/Chrysanthemums.jpg" keys="Chrysanthemums" format="jpg"/>
I can refer to it using "hazardsymbol":

Code: Select all

<hazardsymbol keyref="Chrysanthemums" placement="inline"/>
and at least on my side when the PDF is generated, the image is taken into account.

Regards,
Radu

I am sorry, Radu. I think my message was misleading. The image keyref I posted here was just for an example. The concern here was about the links in hazard element not printed as link in output PDF.

Hi,

Then maybe you can give me a more precise example and I can try it on my side.

Hi Radu, sorry for late reply. I tried the default PDF generator config. Links added inside the Hazard statement works here. So the customized config has to be edited.
