Subject Re: overflow of fixed block-container
Date Thu, 21 Oct 2010 19:44:06 GMT
Hi Matthias

Difficult to say. It's definitely not easy, especially if you're not yet
familiar with the layout engine. Flow Map introduces the ability to have
multiple flow which all have their own column and page breaks. I think
someone has started flow maps in the past but didn't get far (just some
FO classes I think). You might want to check the archives. Flow Maps
would definitely be a great feature for many. But you'd be in for a
non-trivial project. I wouldn't dare make an effort estimation. But it
would be great if you could jump in here.
