Hi,

Do you mean that inside the SVG you want to add links to files?
If so, the links should be directly to HTML files and not to DITA resources because the output folder will contain only HTML files and not DITA resources. You can from in the output folder the target HTML document and look in it for an anchor to refer to, then create the link accordingly.

Hi,


The main idea is that the base DITA processing does not process the contents of the SVG documents in order to re-write the links found there in any way.

I'm not sure what you want can be done. You would need to make some investigations.

First you would probably need to define in your XSL-FO output named anchors by adding an XSLT customization.
Please see this section which discusses named anchors:

http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/0.95/extensions.html

After the PDF is generated with these named anchors probably your links in the SVG could be something like:

Code: Select all

<a xlink:href="pdfFileName.pdf#named_anchor">
You should also ask around on the DITA Users List, maybe there is someone there who tried this before.

Hi,
I'd like o do the same thing with html (the idea being to create a flow-chart, each module of which links to a task that describes the details for that step).
Is there a way to achieve this in OXY-19?
Thanks

Radu

Hi,

I'm not sure why you need special support in Oxygen for this. If you want various links between HTML files why don't you add them? Or have I not understood your use case?

Hi,

Is it now possible in Oxygen XML 20.1 (<oXygen/> XML Editor 20.1, build 2018061313) to:
  • 1. create flow charts
    2. link the text in flow chart to some topic
For example: In below figure, i wish to first create such flow chart. Secondly, hypelink 'A' to appropriate dita topic.

Please suggest.

Hi,

You can right click the image reference in the Author visual editing mode and choose "Image Map Editor...".

https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/ ... odes2.html

Hotspots and hover links are only available in the published HTML-based outputs. For PDF the links will be presented under the image reference.

Hi Radu,

Thanks for suggesting image map. Please also confirm if there is a way of creating flow charts like above in oxygen.

Hi,

Oxygen does not come bundled with a tool to create diagrams.
In such cases I think most of our users would either use a tool like Inkscape to create an SVG with the diagram or create the diagram with some other tool, export it to SVG and then link it as an image in the DITA topic.
