History | Edit

When you create a new transformation scenario or edit an existing one, a configuration dialog box allows you to customize the transformation with various options in several tabs.

The FO Processor tab is available for DITA OT transformations with a PDF output type.

This tab allows you to select an FO Processor to be used for the transformation.

You can choose one of the following processors:
Apache FOP
The default processor that comes bundled with Oxygen XML Editor.
XEP
The RenderX XEP processor. If XEP is already installed, Oxygen XML Editor displays the detected installation path under the drop-down menu. XEP is considered installed if it was detected in one of the following sources:
  • XEP was configured as an external FO Processor in the FO Processors option page.
  • The system property com.oxygenxml.xep.location was set to point to the XEP executable file for the platform (for example: xep.bat on Windows).
  • XEP was installed in the DITA-OT-DIR/plugins/org.dita.pdf2/lib directory of the Oxygen XML Editor installation directory.
Antenna House
The Antenna House (AH Formatter) processor. If Antenna House is already installed, Oxygen XML Editordisplays the detected installation path under the drop-down menu. Antenna House is considered installed if it was detected in one of the following sources:
  • Environment variable set by Antenna House installation (the newest installation version will be used).
  • Antenna House was added as an external FO Processor in the Oxygen XML Editor preferences pages.
To further customize the PDF output obtained from the Antenna House processor, follow these steps:
  1. Edit the transformation scenario.
  2. Open the Parameters tab.
  3. Add the env.AXF_OPT parameter and point to the Antenna House configuration file.
