Creating a Table of Contents

Thu Oct 02, 2014 2:52 am

I have just started a new job that uses Dita xml and Oxygen for their manuals. I have not received training and I'm struggling through it. I have finished the content and need to create a table of contents for my first manual. How do I do this? Also, what is the best strategy to learn both DITA XML and Oxygen Editor?

Hello,

You should create the table of contents in a DITA map. You create a new DITA map file in Oxygen in the File -> New dialog and you edit it in the DITA Maps Manager view.

For learning about editing DITA XML files in the Oxygen application I recommend this video demo, this video demo, this webinar and this webinar, all available in the Videos section of this website.

Thank you Sorin. I was able to creat a TOC.

when I transform my document I am getting extra pages between Chapters that I don't want. How do I get ric of them?

Hello,

Please give us more details about the problem. In what type of output do you get the extra pages? Is that the PDF output of the DITA Map PDF transformation?

What are the extra pages? Are they some empty pages between any two chapters? Is it only one empty page between two chapters but you would like no empty page between chapters?
