outputclass drop list

Wed May 17, 2017 11:31 pm

Sorry if this has been answered previously - I could not find an answer.

I am simply needing to know if it is possible to create a drop list for the outputclass attribute (or any attribute for that matter). I would like to simplify the effort of the author by providing a list instead of remembering what is available.

I looked into modifying the cc_config.xml file, but that didn't appear to fit the need.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

It appears that I needed to restart oXygen instead of refreshing the edited page.
cc_config.xml will get the job done.

Hi,

Strange, pressing F5 in the opened DITA topic should have been enough for it to use the new cc_config values.
An alternative to this is by creating a Subject Scheme Map:

Great info, Radu - thanks. Is there an equivalent to this for use with the Web Author Chrome app?

Hi,

Sorry about the delay, the Web Author Server should also have the same DITA framework folder bundled with it so this cc_config.xml configuration change made to the DITA framework that is made for the standalone version of Oxygen can also be used there.

https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/19.0/ug-editor/topics/customizing_frameworks.html

The Subject Scheme map is not yet used on the Web Author to impose attribute values, we have an improvement added to our internal issues list for this and we will notify you when this gets fixed.
