[oXygen-user] Using cref, oxygen, and transforms

oXygen provides simple transformation scenarios to covert a topic
directly to PDF or HTML through a stylesheet. It also provides
transformation scenarios that wrap the DITA Open toolkit and those are
the ones you should use to get the conrefs resolved. They are available
from the DITA Maps Manager view.
One way to get that working is to
* make visible the DITA Maps Manager from Perspective ->Show View ->DITA
* Use the open action from the DITA Maps Manager and open your topic
file (for instance I named that test.xml)
* Use the Configure Transformation Scenario action from the DITA Maps
Manager to start the scenario configuration dialog and then use the New
button to create a new scenario. You will get a list of possible
scenarios including XHTML and PDF - IDIOM FO Plugin, select the one you
want, Ok everything.
* Use the Apply transformation scenario action from the DITA Maps
Manager to get your output - you should be able to see in the results
area in oXygen also the output of the DITA OT preceded by the command
line used by oXygen to invoke the DITA OT.
