PDF Output Issue

Post by Stacey » Tue Jun 30, 2020 3:42 pm


I have a table that has three columns. Some of the entries in the first column are included in multiple rows (<entry morerows="1">). This looks fine in WebHelp output as the page is infinitely long. In PDF output, there are some table rows that are moved to the next page, so the first column appears empty. This may be confusing to users.

Is there a way to repeat the column 1 data on subsequent pages when the rows that are affected appear on multiple pages?

There is no way to repeat the column 1 data on subsequent pages.
Normally the default behavior is to not display the bottom border when the table spans on multiple pages.
This shows the reader that the row isn't finished yet.

You can also customize the output using the following property:

Code: Select all

*[class~="topic/entry"] {
    vertical-align: middle;
Like this the content of column 1 will be centered.
