Headers/Footers for Backmatter, Not Frontmatter

Hi, The following page explains to use @page matter-page when setting headers and footers for frontmatter and backmatter: https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/21.1/ug-pdf-css/topics/dcpp_default_page_definitions_css.html. However, is there a way to set headers and footers only for backmatter and n...

CSS String Variables

Hi, I'm trying to use a string variable so as not to repeat the same text in multiple places in the CSS. The code looks like this: :root{ --footer-text: 'Confidential - Proprietary Information - For Use By Authorized Company Clients Only. Do Not Distribute.'; } @page { @bottom-center { content: var(...

Re: Formatting of Footers for PDF Output

Thanks, Julien. After much experimentation, I was able to create SVG images that work for the header and footer borders. It was a strange experience. I was using Lucidchart to create the images. When I tried to create an 8.5" x 11" image, the resulting SVG was actually too big to fit on the page whe...

Thanks, Dan! I used @page chapter-left as the selector, and this time the font properties were honored.

Header Fonts and String Function

Hi, I'm trying to set up the headers for PDF output. I'm using <oXygen/> XML Author 21.1, build 2019090904. When I try to specify font-family or font-size for the header, these properties are ignored. Only the font-weight is honored. @page :left { @top-left { content: "Some Sample Text"; font-family...

Re: Formatting of Footers for PDF Output

Short Descriptions in Reviews

Hi,
Is there a way to suppress the Short Description element so it doesn't appear to reviewers in Content Fusion? My concern is that they will assume that the text prints out as part of the topic.

Thanks!

Re: Column headings for subcolumns

Thanks, Radu. I'm using Oxygen XML Author 21.1 and we output using PDF based on HTML and CSS. One of my fellow writers just suggested using the @scope attribute. I can set the @scope to "col" for cells that need to be treated as headers, but are not in the first row of the table. For example, <row> ...

Or rather, that's how it looks in Author mode, but in Text mode you can see that the whole table is actually coded as four columns, and in most of the rows, the right thre...

Re: Searching for Text in Reused Components in Current Dita Map Hierarchy

Thanks Radu. I can see that including the reusable content as a "resource-only" entry in the ditamap would help. Where it gets a little complicated is if you have a number of components that are reused in topics in one book, and maybe some of those components are also reused in topics in other books...

Re: Finding Writers Affected by a Shared File

Thanks, Sorin! I have now upgraded to version 21, and as you say, the image dependencies are now working. This is going to make our lives a lot easier.

Going forward, it will be better still when you enhance the dependencies view to handle keyrefs and conkeyrefs. Keep up the good work!
