And now ST_RelFromV RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all;

    Please take a look at Images position vertical.docx. Maybe this has to do with the fact that the ST_RelFromV settings are used for both relative & absolute. But for absolute, it looks like insideMargin, page, and topMargin all do the same thing. And bottomMargin & outsideMargin also seem to be the same thing. And finally line and paragraph appear to be the same.

    Is there any difference between them for absolute positioning? And if not, why all the choices in Word (this question is just idle curiosity)?

    thanks - dave

  • Hello David:

    The best we can tell, Inside Margin and Outside Margin were created for the horizontal positioning for the book layout where internal side of the page can be either left or right depending on its oddity. For Vertical absolute positioning, interpretation of inside/outside is also changing between top and bottom depending on the oddity of the page.

    Having topMargin and Page as options make sense when used with Vertical Alignment or Relative Position. But in the absolute position case, it seems to be there, but not really useful.

    So in short, this comes down to us re-using some values for two situations (Vertical Alignment or Relative Position) that are not useful for Absolute Positioning.

    Thanks.
