Re: How can I change monospace elements to sans-serif

In case you want to replace all fonts in your publication with a single Sans Serif font, you can increase the importance of your CSS rule: * { font-family: Arial, Verdana, Tahoma, Helvetica, sans-serif !important; } In case you want to change the font for all code sections, you should create rules t...

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;
}
Many regards,

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.

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

Please read here:

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).

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.
