Point pages

When the replacement material for an input changed or manually included leaf cannot be rendered on the pages associated with that leaf, the excess material is automatically set on one or more point pages. If in a subsequent update, the replacement material for an existing point page leaf cannot be rendered within the pages associated with that leaf, the excess material will be set on one or more point pages at the next point page level. A level separator — defined as either a single character or bracket character pair — identifies each folio point page level.

The partition page folio format and folio separator character determine the format of each point page level index. Use the <leaf-settings> command if you need to adjust the folio level separator character.

Zero point pages

In the special case where additional content is added to a primary leaf located immediately before an existing point page, and the primary leaf overflows, the excess content is allocated to one or more zero point pages. In the following example, one or more paragraphs of text are added to leaf 5:

When the partition is typeset, the content of page 6 overflows. Leaf 6.1 already exists, so in order to make the paged overflow fit within the numbering scheme, two zero point pages 6.0.1 and 6.0.2 are created:

[Note] Note
  • If you are using the 999(abcd) page folio format, the zero point pages in the example above would be labelled 6(Aa) and 6(Ab).

  • The easiest way to avoid creating a zero point page is to manually include one or more adjacent leaves.
