Re: labelling figures

Is there any way you can cross reference <fig> numbering in the body paragraph?
As far as I know you can add a <ph> phrase element tag on a figure title. Add an ID to that <ph> element and cross reference it.

Update links in DITAMAP

It would be great if:
- the ditamap could update links to renamed or relocated dita files
- picture reference links in the dita files were updated to the renamed or relocated images.

I know this was possible in another authoring suite I was using.

Re: Display of graphics in PDF output

This is an old post but some information I discovered that might be helpful.
Make sure your images are within range of 180 dpi -300 dpi. This should prevent Apache FOP randomly scaling your images. I found anything above 300 dpi does weird things to scaling images.

Re: Creating a text reference to figures

I should clarify in that all i need in the body text is only the <fig> element numbering inserted when referencing to a figure.

Re: Creating a text reference to figures

Hi Sorin, Thanks I tried doing as you mentioned. It didn't seem to work when outputting the dita files to pdf format. All it did was highlighting the text in a different color (obviously referencing the figure. Actually I don't need a hyperlink to the figure. All I need in the body text is when ment...

Re: Creating a text reference to figures

Hi Sorin, Thanks for your help. It's much appreciated. I probably haven't been 100% clear what I'm aiming for. When I tag a DITA image with a <fig> element, I also insert a <title> element. I can see Figure: inserted when viewed in the oxygen author and then I add a title to the figure. I've noticed...

Re: Creating a text reference to figures

Hi sorin,
ok I got it working. However it references the <title> tag of the fig. I would actually like to reference the <fig> tag. However this doesn't seem possible?

Re: Creating a text reference to figures

Hi Adrian,
I've tried what you have suggested but get this error:

Conref was not expanded:
The source element "ph" with class value "- topic/ph " is not a generalization of target element "body" with class value "- topic/body " .

Re: Creating a text reference to figures

Hi, I'm creating a xml document using DITA. I've inserted dita image, and tagged it with a <fig> element and <title> element. I'd like to reference the <title> in my paragraph text. That way if I update the document with more dita images, I won't have manually update image references in my body text...

Creating a text reference to figures

How do I create a text reference to a figure? So if I update a document with more figures, it will automatically make changes to figure references.

Thanks in advance.
