Oxygen XML Editor comes bundled with the DITA Open Toolkit that provides a mechanism for converting DITA maps to PDF output. There are numerous ways that you can customize the PDF output and the topics in this section discuss some of those possibilities.

Creating a DITA Map to PDF Transformation Scenario

To create a DITA Map to PDF transformation scenario, follow these steps:
  1. Click the Configure Transformation Scenario(s) button from the DITA Maps Manager toolbar.
  2. Select DITA Map PDF and click the Edit button (or use the Duplicate button if your framework is read-only).
  3. Use the various tabs to configure the transformation scenario. In the Parameters tab, you can use a variety of parameters to customize the output. For example, the following parameters are just a few of the most commonly used ones:
    • show.changes.and.comments - If set to yes, user comments, replies to comments, and tracked changes are published in the PDF output.
    • customization.dir - Specifies the path to a customization directory.
  4. Click OK and then the Apply Associated button to run the transformation scenario.
