Sharing Application Settings

Posted: 24 Nov 2015 11:44 PM PST

     There are varios ways in the Oxygen standalone version through which a  
team of writers       can share and use a set of common settings. Below I  
will try to list each of these       possibilities along with useful  
links:                   Save the settings at project level and have all  
users use the same project               "projectName.xpr" file in the  
Project view when editing. Most of the Oxygen             Preference pages  
have a switch radio button which allows you to pass the settings  
to             Project level and save them in the current project  
configuration file opened in the             Project view. If you commit  
that Project configuration file to a version control system              
like GIT or SVN, all writers can open and use that project when  
working             with the repository content.            For example,  
when we work on the Oxygen User's Manual using our common                
GitHub repository, we all open in the Project view  
the               "userguide.xpr" project which comes with various fixed  
options (eg: enabling             automatic spell  
checking):https://github.com/oxygenxml/userguide           You can find out  
more details about sharing projects here:  
Create and then provide a default options XML document to others. When  
placed in             a specific place in the Oxygen installation or  
referenced via a specific property in the             application startup  
script, this default options XML document will be used by the              
application to provide default values for certain settings. You can find  
out more about             how default options work  
Have others manually import an options XML document which you  
exported          from  
An Oxygen plugin could use our Java API to impose fixed options when  
the             application starts using the API method:                
value). In our Maven-based SDK we have a sample plugin called                
ImposeOptions which imposes a fixed set of options when the application  
starts.                                If you want to share document type  
configurations (for editing certain XML vocabulary)       you can find more  
details in this older blog post:
