New ID when duplicating topic

Post by chrizzbee » Fri Jun 30, 2017 9:33 am

Feature request:
When duplicating a topic from within a map, a new ID on the root element should be generated at the same time. If this is somehow not intended, you could provide a checkbox for the ID creation (default = new) in the following dialog which prompts for the new file name.

Hello,

I just wanted to let you know that in the recently released oXygen 22, when using the Duplicate topic action from the DITA Maps Manager, the ID is now updated. The ID update takes into account the Use the file name as the value of the root ID attribute option from the DITA > New topics preferences page. When the option is deactivated, a unique ID is generated.

Best wishes,
