Word Document Formatting

Post by Yann » Wed Sep 05, 2018 4:31 pm

Hi,

My company has been making printed user guides for many years now, but we just recently started using DITA. I love it, except for one thing. Everything I make needs a lot of formatting once I apply a transformation scenario.

My question is: How can I customize the Microsoft Word formatting when I apply a transformation scenario so that I end up with the same "look and feel" my company has been using for years.

Do I have to manually edit the Word document every time I apply a transformation scenario?

Thanks

Radu

Hi,

The plugin Oxygen uses to convert DITA to OOXML comes with a default template file located in:
OXYGEN_INSTALL_DIR\frameworks\dita\DITA-OT2.x\plugins\com.elovirta.ooxml\resources

More about this here:
