Subject Generating a PDF from an APT file
Date Mon, 29 Sep 2008 12:43:18 GMT
Hello!

I want to create a PDF document from an APT (almost plain text) file.

I want the PDF document to have a title page. However, the resulting
PDF document doesn't have any title page, it begins straight with the
chapter/sections.

My POM looks like this:

<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"
xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
  xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0

  </dependencies>
</project>

The book descriptor is as shown below.

<book>
  <id>maintenance-manual</id>
  <title>Marketing-DB Maintenance Manual</title>

  <date>29.09.2008</date>

    <chapter>
      <id>how-tos</id>
      <title>How-tos</title>
      <sections>
      	<section>
	    <id>section1</id>
	</section>
      </sections>
    </chapter>
  </chapters>
</book>

All other files can be found in the attached zip file.


What should I change in order to get a title page in my document?

Is there any tutorial about how to configure the layout (fonts,
colours, headlines etc.) of the generated PDF?

Thanks in advance
