Subject: DOCBOOK-APPS: pdfjadetex vs. upgrade vs. PositionPreference?
My question: What might have changed in pdftex (I'm pretty confident that is where the change is) to cause a change in the spacing of docbook titlepage elements? How do I address this?? In particular, I am comfortable working out spacing of other items if I can cause that the legal notice appear at the bottom of the page (it used to...). The background: I have just upgraded my (previously stable) RH 6.2 environment to RH 7.1. I am using the RH-supplied openjade/pdftex tool chain with the latest modular stylesheets. That combination of tools resulted in extra pages after each of title page(s) and TOC page. I upgraded to pdftex 3.11, which solved the extra-page problem. This leaves me with (I hope) only an issue of titlepage spacing. Documents generated with my previous tool chain had a title page with three sections spaced across the page - Title, author/sponsor, and legal notice. I had used PositionPreference: 'bottom (perhaps without effect???) to cause the legal notice to be positioned at the bottom of the page. Now, with the set of tools that I am using, the titlepage elements appear in succession, without any spacing in between. This places things at the top of the document without any intervening white space. Has there been a change that affected PositionPreference? Any other changes that would have altered the spacing of elements on the titlepage? Thanks, Lane. -- Lane Stevens Terrapin Technologies, Inc. http://www.cycletime.com
