  Subject: Is it possible to toggle multicolumn from page to page
   PostPosted: 10 Jun 2010, 05:05 
I notice that the page.break tags give the ability to rotate from portrait to landscape as you are changing pages. Is it possible to do the same thing with the multicolumn setting?

I have a document that contains some sections that would really benefit from the multicolumn feature, but other sections don't require it, so being able to switch back and forth would be really useful.

Thanks,
Steph.

Unfortunately the feature is not supported.

If multicolumn is needed for a single page only, you may play with undocumented
<pd4ml:layoutbox>content</pd4ml:layoutbox>

It "understands" the following attributes (numbers are default values):

maxcols=4
colspacing=20
scalelimit=0.75
scalestep=0.02
width
height

The purpose of the tag is to try to fit given nested content into a box, limited by height/width. It scales the content down till scalelimit. If a single column is not sufficient for the content, it tries to layout into 2 columns etc.

Is there a character limit on this facility? For some reason it cuts a long description off half way.

Thanks, Lee
