How to apply the same style on all articles?

Postby Ojser » Wed Sep 26, 2012 12:57 am

Hi,

I'm just wondering about the style that all articles should respect in OJS. Is there a way to automatically apply the same styles and format (page setup, margin, section styles,..) on articles, or this should be done in a third part tool (plugin, text editor "word,..etc") ?

Thanks

Regards,
Ojser

Hi!
You can upload custom css file in journal manager (step 5) and apply all custom rules to the article classes.
Only article's font family should be changed in one of the system's css file.

Thanks Garant,

Actually, I meant in the PDF file!
How to apply the same layout (journal title, margin under titles, margins between titles and authors names, affiliation,...between abstract and the introduction...etc.).
This can be done manually but it's time consuming and it will not be the same all time, as we may make mistakes here or there! So, an automatic solution may be a good alternative!
Take a look at PDF articles published professional editors, you will see that articles always appear with the same layout (margins, blank space between sections, different fonts and sizes for different sections..etc)!
They should use a template for that, shouldn't they?

Hi!
I tried to google and found that PDF could be customized and exported with CSS.
PDF is almost a XML file... So I thing it should be some software to customize PDF
