Description AMA3 2011-02-15 23:30:50 UTC
I'm using FOP 0.95 in XMLSpy.

When I flow content from a first page having a simple-page-master onto a second (rest) page having a more narrow region-body, the content on the second page has the same width as the content on the first page, overflowing the body. This also happens if I set the column-count on the second page to be greater than the column-count on the first page.

How do I force the engine to recognize that the available horizontal space has been decreased, and adjust the body (or column) width accordingly?

A stylesheet that demonstrates the problem is attached (use with any XML document that contains sufficient text content to flow from page 1 to page 2).

the problem you describe is known as Changing IPD problem. That is a known issue in 0.95. For v1.0 we developed a fix for it that works in most cases. There are some limitations related to lists and tables, but for regular text, upgrading to FOP v1.0 should resolve your problems.
