Hided header (rST)

Asked by semy on 2012-07-06

I've just installed ReText and it doesn't render everything properly.

When I'll write:

    Header
    ======

I can't see it in preview or in exported PDF. It looks like editor just omits this part of text. Why?

Edit:
But this:
    some text

    Header
    ======
Works fine

When you put a header in the beginning of the file, it's considered as document title, so it won't be displayed. But if you export your document to PDF/HTML/WpGen, this will be displayed as a title.

According to the specification (http://docutils.sourceforge.net/docs/ref/rst/restructuredtext.html#document):

> <...> A lone top-level section title can be treated as the document title. Similarly, a lone second-level section title immediately after the "document title" can become the document subtitle. The rest of the sections are then lifted up a level or two. See the DocTitle transform for details.

Can you help with this problem?
