DITA Maps Manager and relationship tables

Tue May 22, 2012 5:58 pm

Is it possible to influence the way topics are displayed in the DITA Maps Manager? I am currently working on relationship tables for a huge document. I always wish there was a way to display file names in addition to topic titles.

My oXygen version ist 13.1.

Thanks for your support

Hi Susanne,

Sorry, this is not possible.
If you hover over a topic title the tooltip should also tell you the file name.

But I think there are easier ways to link in your relationship table to topics which are shown in the DITA Maps Manager.
I will assume that the DITA Map for which you are editing the reltable is opened in the main editor in the Author page.
Just drag and drop a topic from the DITA Maps Manager tree to a cell in the relationship table. This will automatically insert a link to it.
You can also add in the Oxygen Project view your entire project's directory and also drop from the Oxygen Project topics in the <relcell>'s.
Or if you have a Windows Explorer (or an equivalent) opened side-by-side with Oxygen you can copy the file from it and then paste in Oxygen, it should also try to insert a reference to it depending on the context where the paste is made.
