Creating a DITA Map PDF - based on XSL-FO Transformation Scenario

To create a DITA Map PDF - based on XSL-FO transformation scenario, follow these steps:
  1. Click the Configure Transformation Scenario(s) button from the DITA Maps Manager toolbar.
  2. Select DITA Map PDF - based on XSL-FO 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.
    • editlink.remote.ditamap.url - When this parameter is set to "true", the DITA topic path is displayed to the right of each topic title in the PDF output.
  4. Click OK and then the Apply Associated button to run the transformation scenario.
