Re: Transforming to HTML strips all dash characters

It definitely happens on different browsers and on different machines. It happens when I do a local build on my Mac using a transformation scenario, but it's also present in Help built with our own builder, using a different CSS, running on the company's demo servers, which run Linux (not sure which...

Transforming to HTML strips all dash characters

We have a large Help system authored in DocBook XML. Our developers have integrated Saxon transformation to HTML (EclipseHelp plugin is the final format). We noticed that in all our code examples, all the dash characters are stripped out. I don't think this was happening with the older version of Au...

Having a problem with xi: and <link>

Not sure if this is an issue anyone on this forum can address, but here goes. I have a rather large DocBook based Help system inherited quite some time ago. It's DocBook 4.0, and it uses system entities in the master document file to include various other topic files. The problem is that the system ...

Re: Hidden files in SVN working copy on OS X Yosemite

Perfect... thanks! Hello, The behavior your describe (the generation of ._ files) is not oXygen, nor Syncro SVN Client specific, but rather dictated by an OS option or by another application you have installed. Anyway, you can avoid seeing these files in Syncro SVN Client by instructing the applicat...

Hidden files in SVN working copy on OS X Yosemite

I just got a new MacBook running OS X Yosemite, and talked my company into upgrading me from Author 14 to the latest. :D I'm having a noncritical but annoying issue and I would like to sort out if it's behavior of OS X or the SVN client, or both. The company I work for maintains all technical docume...

Re: Code Templates shortcut stops working

Hello, We are not aware of such bug in v14.2. Could you please provide more clues about what operations you've been running in Oxygen prior to the shortcut stopping working? Do other shortcuts also stop working (e.g. menu shortcuts) or is this (Control + Shift + Space) the only this one? Are Ctrl +...

Code Templates shortcut stops working

I use Code Templates a lot. XML Author 14.2, Mac. I use the default shortcut to invoke Code Templates: Control + Shift + Space. Several times a day, most days, this keyboard shortcut stops working. The only way I can get it working again is to restart the application. I tend to work under time press...

Re: How to execute XSLT code outside Oxygen

It kind of depends on what XSLT processor you want to use. If you're using Saxon, that's a Java app and you can run it from the command line when you have a JRE/JDK installed. I have a batch file that runs a custom XSLT stylesheet. Here are the relevant parts of it with some comments added: REM Path...

Re: Help with validation error in modular DocBook

Thanks for pointer to that doc - I was able to create a more modular structure of all valid DocBook xml files. :D Now I have to figure out why my existing build batch file doesn't work anymore. I think it is unrelated to the structure change. (I inherited the whole system from someone who didn't doc...

Help with validation error in modular DocBook

I need to refactor a fairly large DocBook help system to modularize it. The examples for book and chapter files at http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/xml/library/xml-matters3.html would do what I need. I've started a simplified version of that example. However when I try the chapter wrapper (chap5 in...
