I'm using GenPDFAddOn ($Rev: 2790 (28 Feb 2009) $) to generate a PDF from topics with a customised VIEW_TEMPLATE - which works fine. However, if I try to generate a PDF from a series of topics using pdfrecursive=on, the VIEW_TEMPLATE of these topics are not used anymore. Instead, the topics are processed without VIEW_TEMPLATE. Could it be that the VIEW_TEMPLATE setting is only read once per run?

Martin - the recursive processing renders each topic individually - no settings are carried forward from one topic to the next. Do all topics have a VIEW_TEMPLATE set?

There is a test version / release candidate of a new GenPDFAddOn posted to Sandbox/Beta.GenPDFAddOn It does have changes in recursive rendering but I don't think there is anything that would impact VIEW_TEMPLATE.

Only some of my topics have a VIEW_TEMPLATE setting.

I'm going to try out the test version to see if that changes anything.

Martin, did you ever get a chance to see if the test version (now released) had any impact?

-- GeorgeClark - 25 Feb 2011

I just re-tested it using the latest official version (version 1.2) and still get the original behaviour (i.e. no VIEW_TEMPLATES are used when processing several topics using pdfrecursive=on).
