Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] body.start.indent with mixed one and two column layout
You will need to customize the template named 'set.flow.properties' from fo/pagesetup.xsl. There is an xsl:choose statement in there that decides how to add that property to the fo:flow of each page-sequence. You can modify it to handle the elements or pageclasses you want to control. You'll notice that pageclass="index" is omitted, so you should not be getting indents in the index already.
I'm using the column.count.back property to change the layout for the index, glossary, etc for our manual to 2 columns. The problem is, this is inheriting the indent (body.start.indent, I assume) from the rest of the document. This creates a weird look where the back matter columns are intented. I know I can just do body.start.intent=0 to fix that, but I want to keep the indent elsewhere. I'm not sure what sure what template and/or parameters to customize so that body.start.indent=0 only if the current section is 2 columns, otherwise it is 4pc.
