Migrating from Flare to DITA

Post by Anne »

Hi Support team,
There was a post on this topic dating back to 2018:
dita-editing-and-publishing-dita-conten ... 16509.html
Has anything changed since then?
Flare 2021 r3 has an option to generate DITA output, however is appears as deprecated: https://help.madcapsoftware.com/flare20 ... -Types.htm.
Are there other ways to perform this task? Would appreciate any guidance.

Thanks IA

Hi Anne,

I'm afraid we do not have a Flare to DITA conversion available. So if Flare has a DITA export I suggest you try that, maybe you can tell me afterwards if it creates a DITA Map and if it preserves the reusable content and converts it to DITA content references and key references.
We do have a plain HTML to DITA batch converter add-on:
https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/ ... addon.html

So if you publish Flare to plain HTML without any Javascript you could import it to DITA but your reusable content would no longer would be reused in the generated DITA topics.

Regards,
Radu
