In-Topic Display of Relationship Links

Post by jmorales » Tue Feb 09, 2021 7:52 pm

Hi, It would be very helpful if the editing pane in Author mode would include a display of the relationship table links that will render for that topic when a transform is run. Because the links really reside in the ditamap, the display in Author mode would have to be a read-only region, probably highlighted in gray. Also, the display would depend on the ditamap context that is currently selected in the DITA Maps Manager pane. It seems you already know how to code this sort of thing, because I've seen the rendering of keys in a topic change when a different ditamap is selected in the DITA Maps Manager pane.

Similarly, and even more importantly, would be for the topics in Content Fusion to display the relationship links, so our editors can see them. It looks like Content Fusion pulls in the ditamap for context when we create a review, so it should have the information it needs to render the relationship links.

Thanks for considering this suggestion!

Hi,

The "DITA References View" add-on from the Oxygen main add-on repository (main menu Help->Install new add-ons) should show also the related links as outgoing references.
I will also add two internal issues about your ideas to present such links directly in the editing area.

Regards,
