Docbook to WebHelp with Feedback Transformation Scenario

Post by Donika » Wed Oct 17, 2012 10:57 pm


I've found instructions for generating WebHelp with Feedback from DocBook. ... dback.html

However, when I tried to perform this task, I do not see a transformation scenario in the list. Do I need to import it from somewhere?

Thanks in advance!

What is the type of the current XML file that you are editing? If the keyboard cursor or the mouse focus is in an editor panel where a DocBook XML file is edited then the action Configure Transformation Scenario(s) (Ctrl+shift+C on Windows) available on the toolbar and on menu Document -> Transformation will open the dialog box with the same name which displays the list of all transformations which can be applied to the current doument type (in your case DocBook). The same list of transforms are available also in the Transformation Scenarios view (if you closed this view you can re-open it from menu Window -> Show View -> Transformation Scenarios). First the built-in transformations are listed (the ones with a yellow key icon in front of the transform name) and then the project level and global level transforms. The one called DocBook WebHelp with Feedback is a built-in one so it has a yellow key icon. So you don't have to import it or add it manually, it comes with the Oxygen 14.0 installation. Just make sure the focus is currently in an XML editor panel where a DocBook document is edited.

If you run a previous version of Oxygen (13.2, 13.1, 12.2, etc), please note that the WebHelp with Feedback transform was added in version 14.0. You have to run version 14.0 (or later, version 14.1 will be released soon) in order to have the built-in WebHelp with Feedback transform.

You can find more details about running transformations on XML document in the User Manual and in this video demonstration (transformations are presented at the end of the demo) from the video demo page on the website.
