Figure Title Numbering Missing in 18.1

Post by dgallo » Wed Nov 30, 2016 1:46 am

In the Oxygen Responsive Webhelp, figure titles are no longer numbered like they were in 17.1. How can I make the figure titles be automatically numbered again?

Thanks,
Danielle

Hi,

We have choosen to disable the titles numbering because it is done in the context of the topic that includes the figure, and not in the context of the DITA map. So, if you have two topics that contains figures then the numbering will be reset in the second topic.

To disable this customization you have to uninstall/disable the DITA-OT plugin that contribute it. This plugin is installed in oXygen-install-dir/frameworks/dita/DITA-OT2.x/plugins/com.oxygenxml.html.custom .

You have two options to do that:
1. delete the plugin and run DITA-OT Integrator;
2. Comment or delete the template 'place-fig-lbl' from oXygen-install-dir/frameworks/dita/DITA-OT2.x/plugins/com.oxygenxml.html.custom/custom.xsl

Is this still the case? I have figure title numbering that is resetting with each new topic. Is there an attribute that I can set?
Thanks!

Hello,

We already have a similar feature request registered and I have added your vote for it.

We will let you know when it will be implemented.
Regards,
Cosmin

Thank you, Cosmin.
Is there a workaround, some files that could be changed in in the DITA OT to alter the behavior and force numbering to include the whole map? Or is there a way to leave the figure titles but remove the numbering for the time being until the fix is implemented?

Hello,

Indeed, an image numbering capability was present in older versions of Oxygen, but, as Radu explained in a previous post, the decision to remove image numbering was due to the fact that the image number was reset for each topic (thus making the image numbering useless in the context of the map).

However, if you find that image numbering at topic level is satisfactory for your use-case, please follow Radu's instructions in the previous post.
