Forum How do I...?

styling footnotes area

HI Mike,

I have footnotes in my document. The footnote area is styled as below:

@page {
@footnotes {
border-top: solid black 0.1pt;
padding-top: 1em;

Can I specify the length for border top? I need is a border top of length 25% of my doc galley width (or 1in).

Also can I use @footnotes::before? I tried this but it did not work.


Prince doesn't support this yet, but it is fairly important, so we'll add it to the development roadmap for a future release.
Today we have released Prince 7.1, which includes the border-clip property. This can be used to specify the length of the border on the footnotes area.
