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 Skins tab is available for DITA OT transformations with WebHelp Classic or WebHelp Classic with Feedback output types and it provides a set of predefined skins that you can use as a base for your WebHelp system output.

A skin is a collection of CSS properties that can alter the look of the output by changing colors, font types, borders, margins, and paddings. This allows you to rapidly adapt the look and feel of your output.

Figure: Skins Tab

The Skins tab includes the following sections:
Predefined Skins
This sections presents the predefined skins that are included in Oxygen XML Editor. The predefined skins cover a wide range of chromatic themes, ranging from a very light one to a high-contrast variant. To see how the skin looks when applied on a sample documentation project that is stored on the Oxygen XML Editor website, press the Online preview link.
Custom Skins
You can use this section to customize the look of the output.
CSS File
You can set this field to point to a custom CSS stylesheet or customized skin. A custom CSS file will overwrite a skin selection.
Note: The output can also be styled by setting the args.css parameter in the Parameters tab. The properties taken from the stylesheet referenced in this parameter take precedence over the properties declared in the skin set in the Skins tab.
