DITA OT builds fail with v20, works with v19

I am running two transformation scenarios that uses a customized DITA OT v1.8.5 to produce pdf2 and D4P output. Both PDF and D4P produce output when I run it in Oxygen 19. But when I run the same scenarios in Oxygen 20.1, they both fail. Partial PDF and D4P log files below. What do you think? Thanks...

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.

Thanks,

OSX scroll without moving cursor - keyboard shortcut

Using Oxygen 19.1 standalone on OSX. When I have a file open (XML, XSLT, shell script etc), I want to scroll the window without moving the mouse. On Windows I can do this with Ctrl-Up Arrow and Ctrl-Down Arrow. What is the equivalent on OSX? I can do this with 2 fingers on the trackpad but I want a ...

Re: XEP install error

I got it working. All I did was to remove the existing XEP config in the FO Processors dialog, and replace it with nothing. Then it just worked. I guess Oxygen was smart enough to figure it out from these DITA OT parameters that were already there in the transformations scenario: pdf.formatter = xep...

Thanks Radu. Does it need to be the shell script? Because the XEP shell script (usually called "xep") is not in the repo I'm using. Only the jar file xep.jar is available as an executable. I could dig up the shell script from another XEP installation I have, but I'd like to now if I can ge...

XEP install error

I'm using Oxygen 18.1 on OSX. Oxygen seemed to find where XEP was when I installed Oxygen. But when I run a PDF from a DITA map (DITA OT 1.8.5), the build fails with this error: BUILD FAILED /Users/maglid/git/tools/DITA-OT/build.xml:44: The following error occurred while executing this line: /Users/...
