[oXygen-user] Content completion and restricted IDs

Hi Michael,

oXygen provides content completion support for IDREF and IDREFS by 
offering the defined ID values but there is no support for ID values 
based on a schema. In fact, there are an infinite number of such values 
but probably you would like oXygen to propose some value that is unique 
for your document. We have some support for automatically generating ID 
values in the Author editing mode implemented at framework level (that 
is DITA, DocBook, etc.). You can configure that if you open a DITA 
document and use the DITA->ID Generation Options dialog.

Best Regards,
