Re: CSS-based PDF - Cannot put page breaks 1st level titles and toc

Hi Julie, By design, we decided that each chapter should start a new page sequence, so we've added a custom property (an oXygen extension) for that. You could overwrite this behavior by using in your customization CSS: *[class ~= "topic/topic"][is-chapter] { -oxy-page-group:auto; } Regarding the pag...

Re: Title property not working after upgrading to version 21.1

Hi shanweizhong, If, for any reason, you don't want to use the publishing engine, but stick with using the official stable release from our website, there is a workaround I could think of. You should use the outputclass attribute on the specific list items that contain notes and match your outputcla...

Hello,

Have you followed Dan's instructions?

So you need to match the figcaption element, with the class figcap:

Code: Select all

.figcap {

If you use specifically this rule in your customization CSS, it is not possible to receive that error message.
