Hi,

I'm using this thread since I've similar problem to solve. I'm new to DITA and piloting some documents in FrameMaker 2019, trying to get the output that I need. I have created a ditamap with a structure as follows:

Ditamap title (BOOKTITLE MAINBOOKTITLE)

  • Chapter 1 (topicref)
  • Chapter 2 (topicref)
  • Chapter 3(topicref)
  • Chapter 4(topicref)
  • Chapter 5(topicref)

Each of the above chapters (topics) has few more topics embedded which I use for sub-sections of the main chapter for example:

clipboard_image_0.png

In the dita xml structure I have to have a lot of tables, diagrams and many other sub-titles with their contents. After generating an output PDF book I need to move some title in the next page or next column, depends on the situation.

I’m trying to implement a „pagebreak” function in my topic.template and edited the topic.eddmod.fm file to include text format rules just like it’s suggested in few comments above from Michael_Müller-Hillebrand. Here is a result:

clipboard_image_1.png

It seems actually, nothing was happen when I save the changes. Should I save as DTD this EDD file or there is something that I missed?

 

Thanks a lot in advance,

LA

Hi LA,

As far as I understand, you want to page break or column break based on some context.

You can easily achieve this by adding a context rule on the "title " element in your EDD, inside which you can add pagination  Properties.
