Hi Jan,

We already have this logged in but unfortunately we did not have enough
time to discuss a solution in time for Oxygen 10.2

But, if the "DITA Maps Manager" view is opened you can basically use the
"Open" button from its internal toolbar to open a topic or a task
instead of a map.
The opened task will not be rendered in any way but you will be able to
perform your usual DITA ANT transformations on it.
The only drawback is that there seem to be problems with Oxygen not
opening the output file at the end of the transformation but the
transformation should work correctly.
I will try to fix the problem with correctly opening the output file if
the transformed file is a task/topic in time for Oxygen 10.2 (couple of
