creating indexes for pdf output

Post by daz » Wed Dec 08, 2010 9:13 am

I'm creating a DITA document in Oxygen xml Author 12.
I've created <indexterm> in the document. When I DITA OT to DITA map PDF,there
is an index page in the pdf TOC, but no page?

Does the stylesheet need to be edited?

Hi,

Actually the DITA OT PDF transformation only supports generating the index page using the commercial XEP PDF processor. The open source Apache FOP processor (used by default) does not yet have support for the index FO elements.

You can install the XEP as an external FO processor in the Oxygen Preferences->"XML / XSLT-FO-XQuery / FO Processors" page.

Just to update this thread:

Using Oxygen 15.2 or newer you can generate an index page using the default PDF transformation.
