PDF creation /scalefit issue

Thu Sep 21, 2017 5:15 pm


I have an issue with generating PDFs. When the image title is below the image and the scalefit is "yes" on the image there is a huge space between the image and the title in the PDF. The image is scaled to fit the document width but the height seems to have a 'placeholder' for the original height and just at that point the title is placed. Anyhow we can resolve this issue? Btw when using scale or width/height it works.

Using Oxygen XML Editor 19.0 build 2017062918


Code: Select all

<fig id="fig_bfw_y5t_p1b">
   <title>Mask dialog</title>
   <image href="../Images/mask_01.jpg" id="image_cfw_y5t_p1b" align="center" scalefit="yes"/>

And the output would be


In places where scalefit is not declared or scale/width/height is used the title is right under the image

Probably related to this scalefit issue. :(

Thank you for pointing me in this direction. The solution works in some cases when the image is larger than the page. In cases where the image is small, like an icon, it is stretched to full page width. I'll keep looking.
