Question about Oxygen Author performance

Post by akiraaa » Fri May 14, 2021 6:06 am

Hi there,

We are using a DITA topic for conref and conditional output, and now this file has around 4,000 lines (200 KB). In the future this file may reach tens of thousands of lines, we are wondering how Oxygen Author performs for such large files. Will it be tenable to open and edit such a file using Oxygen?

We have clients editing DITA topics in the range of 5-10 megabytes in Oxygen, of course the loading of the topic takes more time as the topic increases in size. In general you should consider splitting your reusable content in multiple topics, maybe based on certain criteria, a topic for reusable notes, one for reusable tables for example. Oxygen's "DITA Reusable Components" view has a "Components" tab in which it should present all such reusable elements no matter if they are defined in separate topics or not.
