Hi all,

In a nutshell: How do I add a line break between the strings in the following:

@bottom-center {
content: string(maptitle) string(parttitle) string(chaptertitle);

Unfortunately, this is not possible with the current version (oXygen PDF Chemistry 19.1).

This improvement was already added in the current development snapshot. If you need this improvement until the next version will be released, please contact us on to provide you a development kit.

Hi Radu,

I think we will wait but it is good to know that the feature is coming soon.

I guess the same goes for front-page-title? Needs to be on two lines with different font sizes.

If for publishing you use a DITA Bookmap, it has two titles, a main book title and an alternate book title. We have a sample bookmap in:


For a regular DITA Map I'm not sure how this could be done, maybe in the main <title> add two sibling <ph> elements, each containing a title, set an "outputclass" attribute value on each of them and then style those <ph> elements from your custom CSS by matching their @class attribute values, making them "display:block" and setting various font sizes to them.
