 Fine tune your DITA PDF outputs using Oxygen Publishing Engine
Fine Tune Your DITA PDF Output Using CSS - presented by Julien Lacour

Wed, July 15, 2020
8:00 AM US Pacific time / 11:00 AM US Eastern time / 5:00 PM Central Europe time

Due to the increasing popularity of using CSS as the customization layer for the DITA to PDF transformation, Oxygen provides a DITA-OT plugin and an engine that generates PDF using CSS called Oxygen PDF Chemistry, making the DITA PDF customization a lot easier, and immediately available to all Oxygen XML Editor/Author users.

As the publishing is triggered by scripts or on integration servers, we also provide the possibility to run the same transformation pipeline that you trigger in Oxygen from a script. This is made available by the new product called Oxygen Publishing Engine, which is the DITA publishing part from Oxygen. 

This webinar will dive into all of these capabilities so you can better customize the PDF output of your DITA project by addressing topics such as: 

  • Customizing tables
  • Customizing preserved elements (such as code blocks)
  • Content marking and flagging
  • Publishing a single topic
  • Properly debugging the CSS

Collaboration Scenarios for Technical Documentation
Collaboration Scenarios for Technical Documentation - presented by George Bina

Wed, March 4, 2020

Technical documentation is rarely created by lone writers, so there is a constant need for collaboration. Collaboration can be with other writers or with people with other roles, usually referred to as subject matter experts, who may be part of your organization or external experts.

In order to be successful, the collaboration needs to be enabled by integrating it as part of the usual processes or workflows each user performs.

In this presentation, we will explore a few collaboration scenarios that show how to implement continuous improvement loops for published documentation, how to integrate documentation as part of the product development workflow, and how immediate collaboration can take place.

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.

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

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.

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

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?

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
  • A demonstration of forms-based authoring in Oxygen XML
  • The benefits to the organization from adopting forms-based authoring

People are usually afraid of authoring XML because they perceive this as a lot more complicated than using a word processing application. The authoring support for XML however was improved continuously in the last years and Oxygen can provide user interfaces allowing normal users to work with XML. These interfaces are a lot easier to use than word processors. In this webinar we will show a few examples of how Oxygen can make XML editing accessible to everyone, and how you can provide similar user interfaces to edit your own XML formats.
