PDF Transform: Table cell does not have a bottom border when row is allowed to break across pages

Hello, By default, the tables.xsl file is configured to keep rows together: <xsl:attribute-set name="tbody.row"> <xsl:attribute name="keep-together.within-page">auto</xsl:attribute> </xsl:attribute-set> This does not allow rows/cells to break across pages. In effect, if a cell in...

How do I make Eclipse transformation to use a sans serif font family in the published text

Howdy, In this article by Jarno Elovirta I've read that you can specify a custom font to be used for output to PDF file. This article also adds some details on configuring fonts for output. I have however not found any information about how would I do the same for Eclipse transformation. Currently t...

Re: How do I make the PDF2 output in Author 19 look the same as in Author 16: tables don't continue

Okay, I've figured it out. To make the table to continue on a next page when it is long enough to fit the current page, we have to clear the attribute that prevents the rows to break. The attribute that controls whether a row can break is called keep-together.within-page . It is the inverse analog o...

Re: urgent !! dita pdf plugin is missing from DITA transformation Type window

Could it be that you have simply opened another Oxygen XPR project? It seems, Transformation settings are stored in the XPR project file (found on the Project tab of the left-hand pane in the Oxygen't main window). For example, when you open Oxygen for the first time, you will possibly have the samp...

How do I prevent resources and their folders from being copied to the output folder during the PDF/PDF2 transformation

Howdy, I've noticed that DITA-OT copies resource folders to the output folder while using PDF/PDF2 transformations. As a result, you end up with an output folder that contains not only the transformed PDF files, but also all the folders with PNG files used in the transformed DITA files. This only ha...
