Prespace on paragraph after table


Prespace on paragraph after table

It looks like the <date> tag is right after the <table>. What
formatting is on the <date> tag?

Assuming FOSI and not some other weirdness:

Check your paragraph to ensure that it has a text break. Prespace is
not supported for in-line elements, or as it is phrased in Help: A text
break must appear in the charlist of each e-i-c that is formatted using
prespace or postspace.

From Arbortext Help: If two elements with identical adjacency priority
values (other than force) have identical preferred values, the maximum
and minimum from the first will be used.

What Andy said, but as Ed asked, what is the formatting on <date>? The
textbreak may be required on the <date> element as well, since it is the
first element following <table>. In fact, if the amount of prespace you
are setting should only apply to a <date> following a <table>, then you
need to set the prespace on <date>, not on <paragraph>.

When developing a FOSI it is usually necessary to provide at least a
textbreak for parent elements like <date> in this case. Some
inheritance may also need to specified for fonts, leading, indents, etc.

I often find that when an element's formatting isn't displaying or
printing as I expect it should, I've missed specifying at least a
textbreak on the parent or an earlier ancestor.
