Printing a single Topic

Postby GeorgeBell on Thu Jan 09, 2014 4:58 pm

When I print out a "one-page" topic, I am getting two pages. The first page is simply the topic title. The second page is the actual topic, which includes the title.
I've clearly set something in error, but I cannot for the life of me figure out what I've done and how to fix this.
Any suggestions please?
Thank you.

How are you printing out the single topic? Are you using Preview As, or do you have a print target with just that topic?

Is there any chance that you have specified a page layout that does not have a body frame? That can cause Flare to do all sorts of odd things to the output, including duplicating pages, so it's worth checking that before looking further.

(Love your tag line!)

I'm printing from the .chm itself which has hundreds of Topics. It appears that page 1 is simply the title, and Page 2 the Topic. And it seems to be happening so far with 6 or 7 I've tried so far. None have printed purely the Topic.

Thanks :-)

But sorry, I can't help. I don't know anything about how to set up printing from CHM output. I'm sure someone else will be able to help.

Sounds to me that the heading style applied to the topic's title has been defined in your stylesheet (probably in the print medium) with the "page-break-after: always" attribute. Then again, I'm not sure given that you say the topic's title is being repeated.
