Re: Use Product information (prodinfo, vrmlist, vrm) in DITA

One option is to create a DITA topic that includes the product meta information that you want to extract from the DITA map, like a version number, and include this topic on the first position, only in the WebHelp transformation. But the big drawback is that this topic would need to be updated for ev...

Re: Smart copy-paste

Oxygen 16.1 comes with a Java 1.7 virtual machine, while Oxygen 17.0 comes with a Java 1.8 one, which is not as able as the JVM 1.7 to extract correctly the clipboard content placed by the Excel application. So it is strange only in the sense that JVM 1.8 from Oracle has this unexpected regression (...

Re: Smart copy-paste

This didn't actually work, Sorin. Changed the DITA document type Priority to High, saved, then restarted oXygen and tried Smart Paste. No luck. I figured it out eventually: Microsoft Excel places badly formatted content in the Windows system clipboard, which can't be parsed as a well-formatted tabl...

Re: Smart copy-paste

The Priority for both extensions is Normal, whereas the Priority for the DITA document type is Low. Don't know if that's a problem. This is probably the cause of the problem. The document types that were added probably have no Smart Paste handler. In order to check this, please switch the DITA docu...

Re: Smart copy-paste

Our use case is actually to copy two columns of Excel data into an unordered list in DITA. In fact it would be only "half-smart," as for each row we want the two columns to collapse into a single list item. Is this possible? For example, could we use refactoring to accomplish this? Do you...

Hi Frank,

The extra text comes from a bug in the DITA-OT toolkit which you can also experience in the DITA Map XHTML transformation. I will come up shortly with a workaround, or better with a fix for this DITA-OT issue, and I will update this topic as soon as I have the solution.

Re: webhelp: wrong order of script and meta tags

Hi Tristan,

You are right, the meta tag with X-UA-Compatible should come before any JavaScript or CSS code. We will correct that in the next maintenance build of of Oxygen 17.0.
