View Full Version : Force Single Column in Desktop ADE

04-11-2013, 02:57 PM
How can I force a single column in the desktop version of ADE? When I make it wide enough, it automatically becomes two columns. I would like ADE to stay at one column regardless of how wide I make it.

Two solutions:


body {
oeb-column-number: 1;

...or using the old and more complicated (but still functional) page-template.xpgt method:

<ade:template xmlns="" xmlns:ade=""
<fo:simple-page-master master-name="single_column">
<fo:region-body column-count="1" />

<fo:conditional-page-master-reference master-reference="single_column"/>


This file should be declared in the manifest as follows:

<item id="template" href="page-template.xpgt" media-type="application/vnd.adobe-page-template+xml"/>

Thank you. The first method is just what I was looking for.
