Copyright page in pdf

Unread postby John Johann » Tue Apr 10, 2018 8:29 am

Hi,
I'm setting up a multi-lingual project for publishing in CHM and in PDF. One TOC for both outputs. One PDF layout for all languages.

I have a copyright page with 4 paragraphs and a small table with contact data. I want the page to show in the CHM -- no problem.

I also want the page in my PDF -- but not listed in the TOC. How do I do this?


EDIT: Never mind
I broke the paragraphs down into variables and built the page from there.
If anyone has a better solution, please feel free to post.

I do this by inserting the topic in the PDF template as a snippet.
Then exclude that topic from the ToC and it will be visible in the PDF, but not in the ToC.

Hi John,

Create the topic containing your copyright information in the Project Files > Topic Files section so that it does not have a TOC entry, and set its include options to PDF only. Then in Print Manual Designer create a new page in the Pages menu and then in this page select Insert Text Snippet in the Insert menu and drag a rectangle to open the snippet dialog. Choose the Load Topic option and enter the ID of your topic from the first step. After that adjust the size and position of the snippet container on the page.

If you use the same ID for this in all your projects you will automatically get an individual copyright notice for each project. Alternatively, you could use the Load External Snippet File option and create a standard snippet file to be inserted in all projects. See the topic on creating snippets for details on this:

Cool -- hadn't realised that I can insert snippets in the PDF directly.
