We found something, we could use the space-before and space-after FO attributes instead of margin-top and margin-bottom in the intermediate FO file. We will notify you when we have a build.

Re: unwanted returns in <codeblock>

Hello Bridget,

Please try different PDF Readers.
I see that the one from Chrome works completely different from the Acrobat Reader.
The first one sets newlines after each visual line, while Acrobat is putting the entire codeblock on a single line, that is bad also.

Re: Sharing CSS files between authoring window and Chemistry PDF (and WebHelp HTML5?)

Oxygen folks - is there a way to run Chemistry PDF with only my CSS applied? I will gladly take responsibility for all counters, page and elements formats, etc.
No, there is no such option. You can try to change the build.xml file from the com.oxygenxml.pdf.css DITA plugin.

Re: Can't Style Context Label Text

What do you want to accomplish exactly?
If your usecase is to create padding to the rest of the elements that follow the label, you can use something like:

Code: Select all

*[class ~= "task/context"] {
	padding-left: 1in;
	
}
*[class ~= "task/context"] > .tasklabel {
	margin-left: -1in;
}
