Re: Picture path error in PDF output

Publishing individual topics is always more tricky because there might be references that are not processed (especially if not having a key context for it). Anyway, with fix.external.refs.com.oxygenxml parameter it should work for simple cases. The other problem you noticed, the direct link to an im...

Re: Picture path error in PDF output

Can you try transforming using the classic PDF transformation, one based on XSL-FO? Do the images appear in this case? Can you move the image next to the topic, change its reference and give it a try?

Re: using external font files from Windows in PDF Chemistry

This is a bug. It will be fixed in the next version (22). As a workaround, you can create a "config/fonts" directory in the working directory of the transformation process, and place the fonts there.

Thank you for reporting the problem!

Re: How to change the default generated text format in PDF

Hello,

I think there is a mistake in your CSS.
I think you need to match both tokens from the CSS class attribute.

Please try:

Code: Select all

*[class ~="sectiontitle"][class ~="tasklabel"] {
    color: blue;
    font-weight:bold;
}

Re: Formatting of Footers for PDF Output

Hello,
Please use the property:

@bottom-center {

This will make the text bleed out to the left and right space and avoid line breaking. The text will be still centered.
