WebHelp Responsive: Changing Figure Title Style

Post by B-E-N » Fri Sep 02, 2016 4:20 pm

Hi,

by default, the WebHelp Responsive output puts the figure titles above the image and puts a number in front of the title: Figure 1. Project window

What I would like to do:
1. Figure title without number (Project window)
2. Figure title below image

For step 1, I thought I could use the args.figurelink.style parameter and set it to TITLE. Unfortunately this didn't remove the Figure 1. from the output.

For step 2, I didn't find a solution yet.

(Oxygen 18.0.1, custom DITA OT 2.0.1)

This is the default HTML output when you are using an external DITA-OT framework. The DITA-OT 2.x that comes bundled with oXygen 18 has installed a DITA-OT plugin that removes the figure number. This plugin is installed in:

Code: Select all

{oXygenInstallDir}/frameworks/dita/DITA-OT2.x/plugins/com.oxygenxml.html.custom/
So, a solution is to copy this plugin in your external DITA-OT. After you have copied this plugin please run the 'Run DITA OT Integrator' transformation scenario to activate it.

Sorry for the late reply. But thanks, all worked fine!

For step 1, I edited the dita2htmllmpl.xsl file instead to remove the "Figure" caption. Adding a new plug-in to our custom framework and then triggering the DITA-OT Integrator caused too many side effects.

For step 2, I chose the XSLT approach. The CSS approach caused the images to look stretched in the output (not all of our images use the "scale" attribute).

Just to update the thread, version 24.0 of oXygen XML has been released the following improvement was implemented:
Control the Placement of Titles for Tables and Figures
New transformation parameters (webhelp.figure.title.placement and webhelp.table.title.placement) can be used to control whether the titles of tables or figures appear at the top or bottom of the component.

The complete what's new list is available here:
