Markdown plugin does not appear in transform list

Fri Jul 28, 2017 2:15 am


I'm trying to use to transform from DITA to Markdown. According to what I've read, I should be able to do this from Oxygen. However, the transformation type is not appearing in the Transformation Scenarios dialog.

- My Open toolkit is set to Built-in DITA-0T 2.x with ....
- I've run the DITA-OT integrator successfully

Code: Select all

"/Applications/oxygen/.install4j/jre.bundle/Contents/Home/jre/bin/java" -Dapple.awt.UIElement=true -Xmx256m -classpath "/Applications/oxygen/tools/ant/lib/ant-launcher.jar" "-Dant.home=/Applications/oxygen/tools/ant" -lib "/Applications/oxygen/frameworks/dita/DITA-OT2.x/lib/ant-apache-resolver-1.9.7.jar" -lib "/Applications/oxygen/frameworks/dita/DITA-OT2.x/lib/ant-launcher.jar" -lib "/Applications/oxygen/frameworks/dita/DITA-OT2.x/lib/ant.jar" -lib "/Applications/oxygen/frameworks/dita/DITA-OT2.x/lib/commons-codec-1.10.jar" -lib "/Applications/oxygen/frameworks/dita/DITA-OT2.x/lib/commons-io-2.5.jar" -lib "/Applications/oxygen/frameworks/dita/DITA-OT2.x/lib/dost-configuration.jar" -lib "/Applications/oxygen/frameworks/dita/DITA-OT2.x/lib/dost-patches.jar" -lib "/Applications/oxygen/frameworks/dita/DITA-OT2.x/lib/dost.jar" -lib "/Applications/oxygen/frameworks/dita/DITA-OT2.x/lib/guava-19.0.jar" -lib "/Applications/oxygen/frameworks/dita/DITA-OT2.x/lib/jsearch.jar" -lib "/Applications/oxygen/frameworks/dita/DITA-OT2.x/lib/xml-apis-1.4.01.jar" -lib "/Applications/oxygen/frameworks/dita/DITA-OT2.x/lib/xml-resolver-1.2.jar" -f "/Applications/oxygen/frameworks/dita/DITA-OT2.x/integrator.xml" "-Dstrict=true" "-Dwebhelp.trial.license=no"

Any ideas? I have a 19.X license

What Oxygen version are you using? From what I remember in Oxygen 18.1 we added this specific plugin to the DITA OT 2.x which comes with Oxygen so if you have Oxygen 18.1 or newer you did not need to install anything.
In the "Configure Transformation Scenarios" dialog you can only see the list of already created transformation scenarios. If you press the "New" button there you can decide to create a new "DITA OT" scenario type and you will be presented with a list of available transtypes. The Markdown transtype should be there.

Thanks Radu...that seems to be the one. I had understood that the plugin was read automatically by the Ant integration job. Guess not. :wink:
