Customize the PDF plugin for the DITA Open Toolkit

Nexperia wanted to improve its product data sheets and align them with market needs. The data sheets are written in DITA XML, the PDF version is generated using the DITA Open Toolkit. To implement the changes, parson customized the PDF plugin for the DITA Open Toolkit by making the following adjustments: 

  • A new two-column layout makes optimum use of the available space and shows the important product information in a clear and efficient way on the first page. 
  • By inserting a flexible column break, the text can now be evenly distributed. 
  • Additional product graphics can be included that link directly to the product website. 
  • The Nexperia logo is automatically linked to the Nexperia website.
