Cutting down on the number of DITA tags

Post by maglid » Thu Oct 15, 2020 7:15 am

Does Oxygen editor have a capability to cut down on the number of tag choices that an author sees when adding a new paragraph, etc? I know I can cut down on the tags if I do DITA constraints, but if Oxygen did it it would save me time.

Hi Mark,

There are two options:

1. You can configure content completion though a configuration file. The configuration applies to both Author and Text pages.
2. When editing the framework configuration, in the Content Completion Subtab, you can also remove from the entries collected from the Schema. You can also put Author Actions instead. This configuration applies only to Author page.

You can also mix them. For example use the configuration file to restrict the elements and use the framework configuration just to add some author actions for extra help.

Best regards,
