Reply to: page breaks between topics

I can't reproduce this with XMetaL Author Enterprise 6.0 using the “XMetaL Enhanced PDF via RenderX XEP” deliverable type.

Which version of XMetaL Author Enterprise are you running?
Which “deliverable type” are you using to produce your PDF?
Has the XSLT/XSL-FO been modified in a way that might alter this behavior?

It is possible that this has something to do with the map/topics you are using to produce the output, but the simplest test to see if you see the same thing as me (eliminating your files from the equation for the moment) would be to open the following sample map from the Help menu (which is a bookmap) and generate output using the “XMetaL Enhanced PDF via RenderX XEP” deliverable type:

Help > Samples > Evaluation Guide (DITA)

You should end up with a document containing 5 chapters that each have several topics within them (as well as some topics before and after those chapters plus the TOC, Index, etc). None of the topics within the chapters should have forced page breaks between them while the chapters themselves always begin on a new page.
