Moving Images subfolders and need hrefs to update

Post by zechony » Mon Jun 05, 2017 5:01 pm


Our project consists of multiple images subfolders underneath Main Folders. We want to move all image subfolders into one master image folder at the root of the project - however we don't know if there is an easy way to do this without breaking all the hrefs?
Note: We are using relative paths so I assume ../images/name.png is relative to each of our submaps right? IF we move the maps up ABOVE the root will that work or will that break the structure.

Hello Kristen and welcome to our forum!

The DITA Master Files support [1] seems to be most suitable for your use-case. You just have to add your main DITA map as a master file, then you can move or rename resources in the Project view, and oXygen will display a window from which you can choose to update all the references.

In case you are working with a huge project (thousands of resources such as topics, images, media files and so on), you may need to increase the amount of memory that oXygen uses [2].

Let us know if you need further assistance.
