Cutting down on the number of DITA tags

Does Oxygen editor have a capability to cut down on the number of tag choices that an author sees when adding a new paragraph, etc? I know I can cut down on the tags if I do DITA constraints, but if Oxygen did it it would save me time.

thanks,
Mark

Re: file-less URLs in Oxygen webhelp?

Thanks Costin. Unfortunately, this Oxygen webhelp system is served from a Google Cloud bucket, which does not provide any redirect capabilities. I had already checked. We'll figure something out. I might write my own javascript to do this.

Re: dita-ot:nn() XPath functions

Oh I see it now, obviously I did a defective search. But I can't find dita-ot:capitalize. dita-ot:get-topic-id works. This also works for OT 2.1.

They're probably not documented because they are intended to be internal to the OT.

Re: dita-ot:nn() XPath functions

Aah, I see it in Oxygen's 3.x OT. But it's not in the 2.5 OT I am working with. I thought it was some Oxygen extension or something. There are no docs about this, either, in the OT docs at https://www.dita-ot.org/. Maybe I'll open a bug.

Thanks Radu!

Re: OSX scroll without moving cursor - keyboard shortcut

Aha! Great, that worked. I went to System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts, and I unchecked Mission Control (which was Ctrl-Up Arrow) and also unchecked Application windows (Ctrl-Down Arrow).

Now I can do what I need with Ctrl-up/down, just like in Windows.
