Re: Can I categorize topics for webhelp outputs?

Hi If we correctly understood your question, you would like to have a similar tiled layout also for topics. Unfortunately, this is not possible by default, using the current implementation of WebHelp, as there is no template that you could use for that. However, I've just logged an improvement reque...

Re: PDF Landscape orientation

Hi,

It is possible to rotate the whole topic that contains the table.
See the instructions under "If you want to rotate the entire topic that contains the big table, use:" in this page from DCPP User-Guide.

Hi Duncan, I also tried the Julien's rule and it works correctly - page numbering is reset by the very first chapter, which starts at page 1 in the PDF output. Most probably, in your CSS you have another rule that uses a selector who overrides this. You should debug your customization CSS and look f...
