Indicate that conref is being used somewhere

Wed Sep 20, 2017 4:57 pm

In Oxygen, when I'm viewing the contents of a collection file (where I keep all my conref source fragments) is there a way to show that a conref fragment is being used somewhere? Similar to the way Oxygen shows profiling in a topic (show text within the tag in a different color, or give some visual indication)? So far, we have been right-clicking on the conref source tag and selecting the show Where-used command. This works well, but it is slow. In efforts to clean up our collection files, it would be nice to open a collection file and see at a glance which ones are/are not being used at all. Can we set something that will show us (by highlight, color, etc.) that a conref source is (or is not) being used?

Hi Corinne,

We do not yet have such a feature. How about if instead of presenting elements which are not used with a certain background we would add a new setting in the Validate and check for completeness action from the DITA Maps manager view to report all elements which have IDs and are not referenced?
