Remove <glossbody> from pdf

Wed May 18, 2016 6:08 pm

I'm using the a glossary in my Ditamap this way I can use the <abbreviated-term> tag and add a glossary of terms to my document. The glossary items look like:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE glossentry PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DITA Glossary//EN" "glossary.dtd">
<glossentry id="test_gloss">
    <glossterm>Lorem ipsum</glossterm>
    <glossdef><p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Aenean commodo ligula eget dolor.
        Aenean massa.</p></glossdef>
        <glossSurfaceForm>Lorem Ipsum</glossSurfaceForm>

In my pdf output I would like to include the <glossterm> and the <glosdef> so i've added the glossary like this in my ditamap:

Code: Select all

 <topichead navtitle="Glossary" type="topic">
  <topicref href="Glossary/test_gloss.dita" keys="test_gloss" print="yes"/>

in the print i also get the <glossbody> elements, I don't want that, does anybody know how to remove these from the pdf output?

A solution is to create a PDF customization. The steps for creating a customization directory are described in our manual: ... ation.html

Now, in the custom.xsl stylehseet you can add the next template that filters the 'glossbody' element:

Code: Select all

<xsl:template match="*[contains(@class, ' glossentry/glossBody ')]">
