Table overwriting footer in PDF output

Postby flarenewbie on Tue Oct 09, 2012 12:58 am

In the PDf output for one project, one table is overwriting the footer. How do I get the table to break after point 4? Or would orphan/widow tags work? How much do I set the value to?

The first thing that I'd check is the Page Break settings for your TableStyle. (Using Version 8) Open the TableStyle.css and go to General > Advanced. What is the Page Break for Inside setting?

Using Flare 7.2 :(

The writer who created the help system didn't create styles for table, but used inline styles.

If your writer was also using local styles, the fastest way to identify the problem is probably this:
1. Make a backup copy of the topic.
2. Open the topic in Flare's plain text editor, or in a program like Notepad.
3. Search for one or more of these CSS properties: page-break-before, page-break-inside, page-break-after, widow, orphan
4. Remove the property from the style attribute in that element. For example, before:
Code: Select all
<ol style="color: blue; page-break-inside: avoid; text-align: left;">...

And after:
Code: Select all
<ol style="color: blue; text-align: left;">...


I'd bet that "page-break-inside: avoid" is attached to the ol or td element. If you don't find anything in the topic, then check your default stylesheet too.
