Hi Adobe Support Community gals & guys,

 

I have a problem with my index being published in HTML5 format but not in pdf output.

I created an index in DITA and tested it publishing in HTML 5 and pdf.

 

It appears as designed when published in HTML5 (see below):

However, in the PDF output, I get only an empty index page (see below).

I am using metadata and keywords elements in the prolog part:

Or my my code is:

<prolog>
<metadata>
<keywords>
<indexterm>help</indexterm>
</keywords>
</metadata>
</prolog>

 

My test example is a simple ditamap file with 4 xml files containing metadata.

I am running FM version 16.0.2.916 and using DITA / Structural FM. 

Tried testing also with the default.sts file and the result was the same (the empty index page).

 

Maybe some update to the output template IndexTpl.fm should be done. When I opened in FM, it appears exactly as shown in the pdf output - an empty page with a title Index.

 

Any assistance and ideas will be greatly appreciated.

 

Regards,

 

Zornitza Doneva

 

P.S. So far, I sent 2 requests for technical support to Adobe but haven't got any responses, ticket numbers, etc.
