My understanding from searching for information about flagging is that there is or has been an issue when wanting to flag an entire topic.
I am trying to get content profiled with otherprops="Internal" to be output with blue text. It works well on a sub-topic level. When I set this attribute either on the topicref in the ditamap or on the concept (I mostly use the concept topic type) element in the topic, the content is filtered properly, but text does not become blue (to my disappointment). I use my own customized pdf plugin, but the issue is there with regular DITA PDF2 plugin as well.
I see a few possible ways forward and need to understand if these are all viable. Are there other options? My options in order of short-term effort are:
- Profile all subelements of the root element.
- Update to latest version of Dita, in case the issue is solved there. Is it? (I use DITA-OT 2.4)
- Implement flagging on topic level in my plugin. There seems to be some solutions (like https://github.com/dita-ot/dita-ot/issues/2459).
