PDF index page layout

Post by U-Joe » Fri Apr 26, 2019 4:55 pm

Hi,

I'm currently styling the index page for CSS-based PDF. The page have to consist of two or three columns, and each column have to be filled with about the same amount of content (in other words, I'm trying to apply column-fill: balance property).

There is the index page-related CSS code in p-pages-and-header.css.

Code: Select all

@media oxygen-chemistry {
        @page index {
            column-count: 2;
            column-fill: auto;
        }
}
I switch the column fill property to balance, but nothing changes.
Does anyone had this problem before?

Hi,

I'm afraid that the "column-fill: balance" property value is not supported in the current implementation of the Chemistry engine that oXygen uses.
I've just added an improvement request in our internal tracking system and added your feedback and vote for it.

We will update this thread when/if the support will be implemented.

Regards,
