How to suppress related links in PDF output only

Post by DitaNewbie » Fri Dec 18, 2015 2:48 pm

Hi,

How to suppress "related links" (Parent Child, Next, Previous) in PDF2 output while keeping Maps @collection-type="sequence". The reason I haveto keep this attribute in map is to have "related links" in Xhtml but not in PDF output.

I tried following ant values but does not work, it still appear in PDF.

args.rellinks="none"
args.fo.include.rellinks="none"

DITA-OT 1.8


Any idea?

Hi,

Did you refer to the links that appear at the start of each chapter? They can be hidden by specifying the args.chapter.layout=BASIC parameter.

No, I mean if you set collection-type=sequence as attribute of map, you will see end of each topic there will be links to 'Previous Topic' and 'Next Topic' printed in PDF.

Hi,

This seems to be an issue in the DITA-OT PDF plugin. The links to the next and previous topics are generated regardless of the 'args.rellinks' parameter's value.

An workaround for this problem is to remove the collection-type attribute from the map element, but you have to set it to all child topics for the HTML output.
