Re: German tag names in English user interface

Hi Radu, Yes, setting the locale is required for spell-checking and we always did that in our files. However, in oXygen 17.1 which is still installed on my machine, the tag names were still untranslated/English even though "de-DE" was set. Now it is a mixture of translated and untranslated tags, and...

Hi, I'm using Oxygen 20.1 on a German operating system, but the user interface language is set to English. However, when I create DITA documents, the tag names are displayed in German in the Author mode. For example, the "shortdesc" element is labelled "Kurzbeschreibung". I believe that this wasn't ...

Sorting tables (and probably also lists) with referenced content

I have a bunch of tables that should be sorted. Some table rows are included via conrefs. These rows are not considered properly -- their content starts with A, but the remain at the bottom of the list. Is there a way to fix this?
Thank you for your help

However, I couldn't find an entry that would explain this behavior to me.

Re: Numbering plugin for PDF output

Hi,
I added one more condition to the xsl:choose:

Maybe other DITA users want numbered headings too.
