How do I hide/show Specific Chapters in Author

Post by julturner » Fri Oct 15, 2021 10:48 pm

Need to hide/show specific chapters for a book that I am working on for a user guide.

--Need to hide one chapter of the book.
--Need to unhide or show another chapter of the book.
--Updated the ditavals to exclude a chapter of the book and then include the other chapter of the book.

After I save the files and created a build, this didn't work. So, my question is how to a successfully hide one chapter and then show another chapter that existed in a previous version of the book.

Thanks,

Julie

Hi Julie,

I answered you here:

So if you are editing a DITA bookmap with <chapter> elements, on each of these elements you can set a profiling attribute with a certain value. Then create a DITAVAL file to exclude a specific profiling attribute value.
Maybe this previous Oxygen XML webinar will also help:
