PDF Output Rendering Issues: Table and Note Spanning Across Pages

Post by Amit+007appviewx »

Hi Team
Greetings!!
I'm encountering issues in the generated PDF output, listed below:
  • When a table spans across 2 pages, the top border is missing on the second page.

  • When a table row spans 2 pages, the bottom border on the current page disappears, along with the top border on the next page.

    Table-4.png

  • When the 'Note' spans 2 pages, it should relocate entirely to the new page rather than splitting across.

Please advise on the necessary CSS adjustments.
Thank you

Hi,
For tables and notes span problem you can use these CSS rules:

Code: Select all

/* Note span */
[class~="topic/note"]{
    page-break-inside:avoid;
}

/* Tables span */
*[class~="topic/row"]:has(*[class~="topic/entry"][rowspan]){
    page-break-before: avoid;
    page-break-after: avoid;
}
Regards,
Andrei

Hello Team
Greetings the given solution for Note Span is working but the Table san is not working can you please suggest the changes to be done ?
"/* Tables span */
*[class~="topic/row"]:has(*[class~="topic/entry"][rowspan]){
page-break-before: avoid;

This is our customized CSS, kindly suggest where the changes needs to be done and also help with the warnings in the CSS.

Hi again,
I manage to reproduce the problem if I remove the table header.
Please remove from the CSS rules that I have you :has(*[class~="topic/entry"][rowspan]).
In order to avoid the page-break in tables the CSS rule should look like this:

Code: Select all

*[class~="topic/row"]{
    page-break-before: avoid;
    page-break-after: avoid;
}
Best Regards,
Andrei

Hi,
Could you please send the CSS files with your customizations and a portion of your documentation files to our email support (support@oxygenxml.com)? I would like to debug the issue you are facing.
If your DITA documents contain some sensitive content, you can randomize it by using Oxygen's Help > Support Tools > Randomize XML text content option.
Create a copy of your DITA structure before doing this operation as the randomizing cannot be reverted.
Regards,
Andrei

Hi Team,
Thank you for your prompt response and willingness to assist.
I'll send the CSS files with our customizations and a portion of the documentation to support@oxygenxml.com shortly. Regarding sensitive content, I'll ensure to randomize it using Oxygen's Help > Support Tools > Randomize XML text content option before sending it over.
Prior to randomization, I'll create a backup of the DITA structure to avoid any loss of information.
Appreciate your help in resolving this matter.

Best regards,
Amit Darekar
