A technical writer's perspective on using DITA

A technical writer's perspective on using DITA - presented by Steven Higgs

March 21, 2017 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM PDT

As a technical writer for Syncro Soft who came from a background of writing in "unstructured" authoring applications (such as MS Word), I have a unique perspective for using Oxygen to write and publish DITA documentation. In this webinar, I will discuss:

  • My experience of coming from an "unstructured writing" background to learning "structured authoring" with DITA.
  • Our company's documentation workflow and various ways we collaborate as a team.
  • Various features in Oxygen that I use as a technical writer to get the most out of DITA authoring.

Multimedia support in Oxygen

Multimedia support in Oxygen - presented by Sorin Carbunaru

March 7, 2017 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM PDT

Multimedia content is essential for present-day systems and Oxygen provides support for rendering video and playing audio files directly in its user interface. Additionally, Oxygen can render animated and interactive SVG drawings, and you can interact with the SVG objects directly in the Author mode. Oxygen also offers a graphical editor for creating interactive image maps for DITA, DocBook, TEI ,and XHTML documents. Join us to find out just how easy it is to create modern content with Oxygen and offer it to the world in HTML5-based output formats, such as WebHelp!

Unit testing XSLT with XSpec and Oxygen

Unit testing XSLT with XSpec and Oxygen - presented by Alex Jitianu

February 28, 2017 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM PDT

A key requirement for an XSLT project is the ability to write unit tests since these tests ensure that you don't alter existing functionality during the project's lifespan. The XSpec framework is a great tool for writing these tests, which is why we integrated it into Oxygen a few years ago. Recently, a new XSpec version was released (0.5.0) and we have also integrated that into Oxygen. In this presentation, I will cover:

  • A short presentation of the XSpec framework
  • How to create and execute XSpec test scenarios in Oxygen
  • An Oxygen plugin designed to speedup scenario development

Understanding and developing Schematron Quick Fixes

Understanding and developing Schematron Quick Fixes - presented by Octavian Nadolu

July 14, 2016 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM PDT

Schematron solves certain limitations that other types of schema have when validating XML documents since it allows the schema developer to define the errors and control the messages that are presented to the user. Therefore, Schematron makes the validation errors more accessible to users and helps to ensures that they understand the problem. These messages may also include hints to help the user to fix the problem, but this doesn't complete the solution since the user still needs to manually correct the issue. This may cause users to waste valuable time and also creates the possibility of making additional errors while trying to manually fix the reported problem. Schematron Quick Fixes provide automatic actions to fix validation errors, thus offering a complete solution, while saving time and avoiding the potential for causing other issues.

Managing DITA reuse with Oxygen XML Editor

Managing DITA reuse with Oxygen XML Editor - presented by Alex Jitianu

June 30, 2016 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM PDT

This webinar focuses on advanced features that justify the return of investment you get from using DITA. REUSE is the key word and it can be implemented either directly through content references or indirectly through profiling/conditional content.

Guided authoring - enforcing editing rules

Guided authoring - enforcing editing rules

June 16, 2016 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM PDT

When editing documents there are various rules that you want your content authors to follow, such as grammar rules, document structure guidelines, business requirements, style preferences, or rules for the generated output. To enforce these rules, companies often use grammar checking apps, custom schemas or best practice guides. For content authors, there are usually too many rules to remember them all when writing content. The best approach for this challenge is to signal the user when a rule violation is detected and offer suggestions to help them solve possible rule problems and maintain integrity in their documentation.

Practical DITA Publishing with Oxygen and TopLeaf

Practical DITA Publishing with Oxygen and TopLeaf

September 23, 2015 (10:00 AM CST)

Publishing DITA documents is often an afterthought to the content creation process, and usually relies on complex programming to achieve the required document format. Styling and layout requirements may be highly complex, especially where both print and electronic formats are required to be delivered.

This webinar looks at how document formatting costs can be controlled, and the process simplified, by using Oxygen XML Editor and TopLeaf XML Composition Software.

TopLeaf, from Turn-Key Systems, provides a low cost, high capability DITA publishing option that solves document formatting complexity with an intuitive graphical interface. TopLeaf is equally suited to single-seat document development groups, and large-scale automated document production environments. It is distributed and supported in North America by Metaformix Information Systems, and is available from Dakota Systems.

Oxygen XML Editor 17 - DITA Support

Oxygen XML Editor 17 - DITA Support

Jun 10, 2015 at 8:00 AM PDT

Oxygen XML Editor 17 comes with many new additions to the DITA support.

Topics and maps offer a choice of main rendering styles, as well as the option to add or subtract style layers. Guided DITA authoring was implemented as two optional style layers that allow you to see inline hints and actions. The CSS-based PDF transformation automatically uses the CSS styles you select for authoring, so that you can reuse the same CSS files when publishing DITA to PDF. Both DITA-OT 1.8 and 2.0 are supported and integrating a new transformation is greatly simplified for annotated transformation types, as Oxygen will automatically discover their parameters.

The DITA to WebHelp transformation optimizes the page loading time and provides context-sensitive help support, SEO resources, and LDAP authentication. The WebHelp output that now supports both RTL scripts and Japanese content can be easily embedded in a page.

Oxygen XML Editor 17 - Refactoring XML Documents

Jun 3, 2015 at 8:00 AM PDT

The XML Refactoring tool helps you change the structure of your XML documents.

It offers a wide variety of operations, such as renaming, deleting, and inserting elements and attributes. If the provided operations are not enough, you can create custom refactoring operations and share them with other team members. All of them are available through a friendly user inteface and can be applied across a set of files.

Oxygen XML Editor 17 - XML Quick Fixes

Oxygen XML Editor 17 - XML Quick Fixes

May 27, 2015 at 8:00 AM PDT

It is important to have documents without errors, but not all users know how to fix the errors from the documents. And even if they do know, ideally they should use a quick and automated solution.

Oxygen does not only report errors, it also helps you correct them automatically through the Quick Fix support, which provides automatic fixes for XML documents validated against XSD, Relax NG, and Schematron schemas. In the case of Schematron, the schema developer takes full control over the Quick Fix actions, being able to offer custom solutions to any detected issue using the Schematron Quick Fix language.

Structure and Collaboration

Structure and Collaboration

December 12, 2014, 18:00 - 19:00 PM GMT

Is there a way to make it easier for casual contributors and collaborators to produce structured content? With the right combination of techniques and tools, we cannot only bring structured authoring within the ability of all contributors; we can make it easier for them to contribute using structured rather than unstructured methods.

Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, for a free one-hour web presentation with special guest, Mark Baker, author of "Every Page is Page One" (2013 XML Press).

Mark will highlight some of the techniques you can use to simplify structured authoring and involve more contributors including:

  • Treating content capture as a separate function and optimize for ease of use
  • Hiding application semantics
  • Fitting content semantics to the author
  • Collecting the minimal necessary structure
  • Fitting the interface to the task
  • Hiding the tags; showing the structure
Deep Dive: XML Structured Authoring

Deep Dive: XML Structured Authoring

December 4, 2014, 17:00 - 18:00 PM GMT

George Bina will explore the world of XML authoring for technical documentation. He will share tips and tricks designed to help technical communicators understand the advanced information management capabilities structured XML authoring provides over traditional authoring approaches. He will use Oxygen XML Editor to demonstrate the techniques.

Cost: Free

Recording available to those who register.

Specifically, George will address the following questions:

  • How do I know what content to create?
  • What XML markup should I choose and why?
  • How do I leverage markup to engineer better authoring experiences?
  • How to we enforce content rules in XML documents?
  • Why correcting content problems during the authoring process can help you reduce costs?

How Merck Advanced Their Global Content Collaboration

October 29, 2013

Since 1899, Merck & Co. has been publishing medical information for physicians, pharmacists, veterinarians, and people interested in medical care who did not have a medical degree. Today, these publications, known as The Merck Manuals, require hundreds of writers from around the world to contribute and revise content on an ongoing basis. With such a large and dispersed team, Merck experienced many challenges in the technologies needed to coordinate and maintain publishing schedules as well as in the varied technical skill levels of team members. Join this webinar, hosted by Vasont Systems and Syncro Soft / Oxygen XML Editor, to hear how Merck has advanced their content management and collaboration processes with this global team to overcome these challenges.

The Business Case for Forms-based Authoring

The Business Case for Forms-based Authoring

June 19, 2013

Structured content is considered fundamental to content strategy and an organization's ability to deliver content where it is needed across a wide variety of devices and media. Yet authoring structured content has always been a difficult problem. Coding raw XML and WYSIWYG authoring do not work for most authors.

Starting with version 14, Oxygen introduced the form controls as a new approach to authoring, one that hides the complexity of XML without obscuring the structure we are trying to capture, or creating hard-to-understand errors.

Oxygen invited Mark Baker, owner of Analecta Communications and consultant in structured authoring and topic-based writing, to explore the business case for forms-based structured authoring. Topics covered by this webinar include:

  • Why structured authoring is critical to the modern enterprise
  • The limitations of current structured authoring methods
  • How forms-based authoring addressed these limitations
  • How forms-based authoring hides XML syntax better than WYSIWYG
  • How forms-based authoring at last delivers the ideal of separating content form formatting
