Flare 2021: "Links used in header or footer frame" PDF Warn

Postby oceanclub on Thu Apr 08, 2021 6:52 am

With the latest Flare, I get the following warning generating a PDF:
Code: Select all
        <LogEntry Message="Links used in header or footer frame - this is not supported for PDF/UA compliance.&#xA;" LineIndex="-1" CharIndex="-1" Subsystem="Compiler" Target="Technical Overview (PDF) (Red)" ErrorID="20065" />


There's no links in our headers or footers, clickable or otherwise. Is this error generated because of the schema link in the underlying XHTML used to generate the header?

Code: Select all
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<html xmlns:MadCap="http://www.madcapsoftware.com/Schemas/MadCap.xsd">
    <head>
    </head>
    <body>
        <div id="textbox">
            <p class="headerleft"><MadCap:variable name="Global_General.Title" /> - <MadCap:variable name="Global_General.Subtitle" /></p>
            <p class="headerright">© <MadCap:variable name="Global_General.CompanyName" /> <MadCap:variable name="Global_General.Year" /></p>
        </div>
    </body>
</html>

I'm also getting this warning on every PDF since the 2021 update.

The only things that might be considered as links in my headers/footers are variables plus the schema previously mentioned.
Is this warning a false positive or should I change my page layouts?

Also - the new warning isn't listed in the Options - Build list of Warnings.
If it's not important, I'd like to turn it off.

I am seeing this also. Like the others, I have variables in my footer. I wouldn't expect this to produce an error.

Can I suggest that if you experience this, raise a bug (see the link in my signature). I reckon we can expect that to be fixed in the next release if there are enough people logging the warning.

I get the same problem. From my testing it seems to be caused by the presence of bookmarks/anchors in the topic content, and nothing to do with headers or footers in the page layout.

I'm waiting for a response from Madcap.

It has been confirmed as a bug by MadCap: "I deleted the footer and header frames and it still gave me the warning. I then removed everything and just left 1 bookmark and it still gave me the warning. I then removed the bookmark leaving just a heading and a paragraph and it removed the warning."
