I've been trying to work this example for my particular problem and it doesn't seem to be working. I probably have missed a detail or a wrong value for my use.
Couple of questions than I'll tell you my results. So there is a botfloat value just like there is a topfloat. So that seems obvious. What I'm not sure of is the proper location to apply the float. So it can be defined on a page description or can be set on the flowtext and the column element within it. I have a single column document, does it matter where I define this float?
so my XML looks something like this:
I'll shwo the FOSI stuff net, but I have tried to define this float to affect the procedure element, becasue when on of 'its steps breaks to a new page, I want the bottom of the first page to have the word (actually a graphic) showing CONTINUTED->. It seems like the float is gathering all the content of each procedure and doign two things:
1) always printing CONTINUED even if the procedure didn't break
2) Content is over flowing the page, so there is no break if it does span a page
3) The procedure content is being moved past several of the section titles. So now I get the ttitle and any text that might come before the procedure - I'll get several of these before the first procedure actually prints and it is run off the bottom of the page with an overset
<floatloc floatid="continued.bottom" floattyp="atpgbrk" maxdepth="0pt"<br"/>minspace="13pt" nomspace="13pt" maxspace="13pt">
<float flidref="continued.bottom" width="page" pagetype="next">
<float flidref="continued.bottom" width="page" scope="acptrejinsp"<br"/>pagetype="next"></subchars>
<charlist charsubsetref="block" continued"=">
Now I've placed the float here with fewer bad pages produced:
<region xoff="0in" yoff="-0.04in" width="8.5in" height="11in"<br"/>valign="middle" rotation="0" layer="-2">
<column width="4.0in" botfloat="continued.bottom"></flowtext>
And I've placed it on the pagedesc with worst results:
<rectopg width="8.5in" nomdepth="11in" bind="lleft" chgmkplc="pright"<br"/>topfloat="table-title.top" botfloat="continued.bottom" maxfloatpct="100" xvjstretch="max">
Any idea what I'm missing or messed up?
After making the final changes Brandon recommended I had one last problem to fix. I had the placement set to after, changing that to before got the reults that I wanted.
