PDF example

None of the linebreaks or white spaces in screen tags are honored in the PDF builds. I have publican 0.45 installed.

For example, I'll have something like this:
<screen>ldapmodify -D "cn=directory manager" -w secret

dn: uid=jsmith,dc=example,dc=com
changetype: replace
replace: cn
cn: John Smith</screen>

But in the PDF, it comes out like this:
ldapmodify -D "cn=directory manager" -w secretdn: uid=jsmith,dc=exam\
ple,dc=comchangetype: replacereplace: cncn: John Smith

This is with my local builds. I'll upload a PDF; see pages 2 and 4, for example.

I'm setting this to an urgent priority. I have a release next week.
Comment 2 Jeff Fearn 2009-04-20 21:29:17 EDT
There are no urgent Fedora bugs that don't include crashing and/or trashing source.

The version of this doc in the ECS SVN repo builds fine for me.

Perhaps you should try pushing a draft in to brew and seeing if that works correctly.

Hi Deon,

Is this still relevant? If so, please provide me a link to the source for testing.

Hi, Mike.

I think part of the problem was related to having inline formatted tags at the end of a line in screen. For example:

<screen>This is my first line, with a <replaceable>variable</replaceable>
tag at the end.</screen>

It would all run together, but if I put a character at the end like &nbsp;, then it worked as expected.

<screen>This is my first line, with a <replaceable>variable</replaceable> &nbsp; 
tag at the end.</screen>

Now, the example I had attached in the original comment, that wasn't the case, yet it was still running together. But I don't know what was wrong then; I re-installed fop and publican in the interim (same versions), and now it's fine.

I think you can close this, but I'll reopen and whine again if I need to. :)

Unable to reproduce in 0.44 or 1.0.
