Re: Header Fonts and String Function

Are you using a publishing template (selected in the first page of the DITA transformation scenrio dialog)? Probably the CSS rules from it are more specific. You can use more specific selectors like: @page :left, chapter:left, chapter:first:left { .. } Or you can use the !important specifier: font-f...

Re: Formatting of Footers for PDF Output

Hello,
Please use the property:

Code: Select all

		
@bottom-center {
		....
		white-space:nowrap;
		...
	}
This will make the text bleed out to the left and right space and avoid line breaking. The text will be still centered.

Many regards,
Dan

Re: Indent from second line in case a numbered heading wraps

Yes. the structure is different for the titles in the main content. You can use a CSS like this one: *[class ~= "topic/topic"] > *[class ~= "topic/title"]:before{ color:red; display:block; position:absolute; top:0; left:0; width:50px; background-color:silver; } *[class ~= "topic/topic"] > *[class ~=...

Re: Indent from second line in case a numbered heading wraps

There are some limitations in the Chemistry we are trying to solve. Until then, you could try the following CSS snippet: *[class ~= "map/map"][numbering^='deep'] *[class ~= "map/topicref"] > *[class ~= "map/topicmeta"]:before { display:inline-block; background-color: pink; vertical-align: top; } *[c...

Re: ::after pseudo-element not working with external links

Hello Anton, This is caused by a series of built-in CSS selectors that remove the "on page" text that appears after the link text (in case of external links) and are quite specific. The solution is to increase the specificity of your selector, like: *[class ~= "topic/xref"][href]::after, *[class ~= ...

Re: Ways to store CSS-accessible book metadata besides <bookmeta>?

Please read here:
post55679.html#p55679

The idea is to add to the metadata section of the bookmap data elements that expand the needed keys. We are not pushing all the defined keys in the merged map because there are cases of large key pools (thousands).

Re: Is it possible to access map variables from Customization CSS?

The main condition is to have this key referenced from the content (either topic or map). If you do not have it referenced, you may force a reference by using the topicmeta or bookmeta section of your map and a data element. This has no effect on the published content, but allows the CSS rules to us...

Re: Is it possible to access map variables from Customization CSS?

If this simplifies the work for your writers, I think you should go on with this CSS+XPath approach. However, if you plan to publish this to other formats, like WebHelp or plain HTML, you will not benefit of this customization, so please take care.
