Hi Adam,


Without producing a working version by myself:


I’d make the marker retrieve-marker look forward, not back. It should print “the next available marker”.

The marker itself I would put at the end of the table. And inside the table, not outside in a block of its own.

As you found out on the first page, what if a table starts at a page? In that case you can put an empty marker in the block which is responsible for the header between tables. If the table starts at a new page, the first marker found is the empty marker and no second headline is printed. Disadvantage: When scrolling through the pages, the upper end of the printed area jumps. If you want to avoid THAT too, we would have to think about a totally different solution, I guess.


Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Hi Georg!


 thanks a lot for the great ideas!

Markers are really my friends... unfortunately I don't know how to use them correct in my situation.


I cant get the right header to the right page. It must be the configuration of the: retrieve-marker...

(I tried any combination I could...)

                 <fo:retrieve-marker retrieve-class-name="tableHeader" 




I attached my current result. The problems are:

- 1. page there should be no marker...

- 2. page should be red and not blue...

- 3. page blue header missing....


If you can tell me how to use the retrieve marker in this situation it would solve my problem! 

Thanks a lot in advance!!!
