Oxygen XML Author Product

DITA Editor

DITA Maps Manager   [read more...]

DITA maps are key components for authoring DITA content. Managing these files and their referenced topics is an important feature for a DITA editor.

The DITA Maps Manager in Oxygen allows you to view and edit DITA map files. It also acts as a type of project manager application, allowing you to easily open and manage topics, tasks, and concepts. The DITA Maps Manager is displayed each time you open a .ditamap file in Oxygen and it will appear as a tab in the same panel as the Project view. Double-clicking a file reference that is listed in a DITA map, opens that file in the editor.

Integrated DITA Open Toolkit   [read more...]

The tools used to generate output in a multitude of formats (XHTML, PDF, HTML, JavaHelp, Eclipse Help, etc.) are ready-to-use out-of-the-box, and Oxygen includes the latest version of the DITA-OT.

Power users have the ability to fine tune transformations by using advanced options (for example, specifying parameters for the ANT build files, filtering content using a DITAVAL file or Profiling Condition Set, providing a custom build file, etc.)

Support for Content References   [read more...]

Content referencing is a convenient DITA mechanism for content re-use from other topics or maps. You can easily insert direct references (conref) or indirect references (conkeyref) in a DITA document using the Reuse Content action (available on the toolbar and in the contextual menu). It allows you to choose the source of the reusable content and target ID of specific elements within the source.

There is also support for inserting content references through the Conref Push mechanism. Oxygen also supports inserting direct and related links, based on cross references, file references, or Web links, and includes other helpful actions for working with content references and reusable components.

Displaying Resolved DITA Content in the Editor   [read more...]

The XML content referenced with DITA conrefs are presented in-place as a read-only block that can be collapsed or expanded. Therefore, Oxygen shows you a picture of the entire XML document with all the XML references resolved.


Support for Creating Chinese, Japanese, Korean (CJK) Content   [read more...]

The input methods for CJK text are fully supported. The editor displays the composed text in a pop-up window when the inserted characters belong to the CJK code pages. The composed text is shown in the context of the document that it belongs to, in a style that indicates that the text still needs to be converted or confirmed by the user.

Find All Elements Action   [read more...]

The Find All Elements action is available in all the XML editing modes (Text, Author, and Grid). It provides an easy way to search for XML elements using a tag name, attribute name, or attribute value.

Text Editing Mode of the XML Editor

Automatic Editing of the Matching End-Tag   [read more...]

It is easy to rename elements in Oxygen. When the start-tag of an XML element is edited, the matching end-tag is automatically changed, thus keeping the XML document "well-formed" and saving you a few keystrokes.

Database Support

XML Schema Improvements

Custom Schema for XML Schema Annotations   [read more...]

XML Schemas contain annotations for providing additional information, such as documentation or application-specific information. For instance, a schema might contain documentation for its components in XHTML or Schematron embedded rules. You can specify a schema for these annotations and Oxygen will use that for providing content completion proposals.

Schematron Improvements

Option for Using Saxon EE (Schema Aware) for Schematron   [read more...]

XPath 2.0 checks, used in an ISO Schematron schema or Schematron 1.5 schema, can optionally be executed with Saxon EE, instead of Saxon B, in order to access the schema-aware features of Saxon EE. The Saxon EE processor is an extension of the Saxon B processor and is bundled with the Oxygen software packages.
