GenPDFAddOnDemo (L1 Heading)

This is a sample document to show what can be achieved with the GenPDFAddOn Plugin.

Here are some headings - note that <h1> level 1 headers always appear on a new page and is treated as a new chapter in the PDF. So the Level 1 heading is not included to avoid the extra chapter.

Level 2 Heading

Level 3 Heading

Level 4 Heading

Level 5 Heading
Level 6 Heading
Foswiki only goes this far frown, sad smile HTMLDOC goes to level 15 smile
Level 7 Heading
Level 8 Heading
Level 9 Heading
Level 10 Heading
Level 11 Heading
Level 12 Heading
Level 13 Heading
Level 14 Heading
Level 15 Heading


Some of the cool features are:
  • Title topic is a fully rendered Foswiki topic, editable from within Foswiki's normal edit mechanism.
  • Headers/Footers are fully rendered Foswiki variables embedded in HTMLDOC special comments, but defined in a normal Foswiki topic.
  • Images are included
  • Margins can be defined
  • PDF permissions can be restricted (this has 'print,no-copy' so you can't copy and paste the text)
  • Recursive rendering of child topics, such as GenPDFAddOnDemoChild


There are a few limitations, like
Really long lines of text in verbatim blocks will run off the edge of the page unless you break them. This is a limitation of htmldoc, not the plugin, so don't complain to me. There is nothing I can do about it but complain to the authors of htmldoc, which you could do anyway. Then again - how would you fix it?

Overflowing tables
