The <headfoot-properties/> command

This command can be used to override styling properties within a header or footer mapping.

Vertical alignment of Header & Footer content

By default, TopLeaf will align the content of a fixed block at the top of the fixed block region. If the vertical depth of the content of a fixed block is smaller than the fixed block depth, then you can use the <headfoot-properties/> directive to specify a preferred vertical alignment for the content in the block. This can also be set by a property on the Paragraph tab.

The command format is:

<headfoot-properties valign="VPOS" />


VPOS specifies the preferred vertical alignment and is one of top, middle, or bottom.

For example, add the following command to the header or footer custom content to align the content at the bottom of the fixed block region:

<headfoot-properties valign="bottom"/>
