Oxygen XML Developer offers an add-on that contributes a DITA References side view that shows all outgoing references for the current DITA topic. The view is available in both Text and Author modes. The types of references that are presented in this view include:
  • Image references (referenced with an @href or @keyref attribute)
  • References to other media resources (DITA objects pointing to video, audio, or embeddable frames)
  • Cross references (referenced in an <xref> element with an @href or @keyref attribute)
  • Key references (referenced with a @keyref attribute)
  • Content references (referenced with a @conref or @conkeyref attribute)
  • Related links (referenced with an @href or @keyref attribute)
  • Related links defined in relationship tables

This side-view is synchronized with the main editor to make it easy to locate a reference in the current document. It also includes contextual menu actions for opening the target of an outgoing reference or showing its definition location. You can also double-click a reference to open its target.

  1. Go to Help > Install new add-ons to open an add-on selection dialog box.
