Hello,

I have a floating text (1..n pages) and need a sign for our inserter
(enveloping machine), which appears on all pages except the last. I tried to
put the inserter-sign in the header, but this sign is also printed on the
last page. Then I tried to overwrite this sign by a white-bitmap graphic,
but this also does not work. Can anybody help me?

Thanks in advance
Markus

I do something similar, except I add "Continued on next page..." in the footer of every page (except the last one, of course! ;-).


How do I do it?

In the flow "xsl-region-body", I place this:

<fo:flow flow-name="xsl-region-body">
  <fo:block xsl:use-attribute-sets="attNormal">
    <xsl:call-template name="tmpBody"/>
    <fo:block padding="0pt" font-size="1pt">
      <fo:marker marker-class-name="table-continued"/>
    </fo:block>
  </fo:block>
</fo:flow>

Then in the footer (region-after) I place an <fo:retrieve-marker ...> at the top of the template which builds the footer. You would place this in your region-before so it would be in the header.

<xsl:template name="tmpFooter">
<fo:block padding-left="18pt">
<fo:table border="0pt" padding-bottom="0pt" padding-right="0pt" padding-before="4pt" table-layout="fixed">
<fo:table-column column-width="19.8cm"/>
<fo:table-body>
<fo:table-row>
<fo:table-cell text-align="left" padding-left="6pt">
<fo:block text-align="left" font-weight="bold">
<fo:retrieve-marker retrieve-class-name="table-continued" retrieve-position="last-starting-within-page" retrieve-boundary="page"/>
</fo:block>
</fo:table-cell>
</fo:table-row>
</fo:table-body>
</fo:table>
</fo:block>
...
</xsl:template>


Then in the tmpBody (which is what makes up the content region-body section), I place an fo:marker which corresponds to the marker.

<xsl:template name="tmpBody">
  <fo:block padding="0pt" text-align="left">
    ...
    <fo:block padding="0pt" font-size="1pt">
      <fo:marker marker-class-name="table-continued"/>
      <fo:block id="endofdoc"/>
    </fo:block>
  </fo:block>
</xsl:template>

(OT: Notice <fo:block id="endofdoc"> which I use for "Page 1 of n"? ;-)

Finally, everywhere which might cause a continued page-break, I place the text & style of the marker I want to display on every page except the last.

<fo:table-row padding="1pt">
<fo:table-cell/>
<fo:table-cell number-columns-spanned="4" padding-left="10pt" padding-top="3pt" display-align="center">
<fo:block font-size="7pt" line-height="110%" padding-top="0pt" padding-bottom="0pt" display-align="before">
<fo:inline font-weight="bold" font-style="italic">
<fo:marker marker-class-name="table-continued">Continued on next page...</fo:marker>
</fo:inline>
</fo:block>
</fo:table-cell>
</fo:table-row>
</fo:table-body>
</fo:table>
</xsl:template>


This took me a while to get working. If anyone has improvements to this solution, I'd be happy to hear it. In addition, I'd be happy to work with someone to get this into the EXAMPLES for FOP. I don't know what would be required beyond what I've included, but I'd be happy to do stuff.
