Keyboard Shortcut to Select Parent Element

Within the Authoring view, is there any way to go back up to the parent element to continue authoring? So, for example, I'm in a para, I type some text, I hit enter to split it into a ul, I start adding list items. Is there any way to get back to the parent 'p' element using only the keyboard? I've ...

Re: AuthorDnDListener Sample

I think I found my answer. The DITA framework apparently does not use the drag and drop handler, but instead uses an ExternalObjectInsertionHandler called DITAMapExternalObjectInsertionHandler. Still wouldn't mind seeing a sample DnD handler, but I think this alternative method will work for what I ...

AuthorDnDListener Sample

Hi, I'm trying to implement a drag and drop listener in the authoring environment. Essentially what I am looking for is the ability to allow files to be dragged from a project or folder, and then have an element added to the target document which references the dropped file via an href attribute (si...

Extend DITA Maps Manager

Hi. We have a collection of XML files that have a book or map file very similar to a DITA map. It's essentially a hierarchical list of chapter and topic references, but they are completely unrelated to DITA with their own element names and attributes, and the content files they point to are not DITA...

Launch current Webdav URL in Default Browser

I'm accessing a file in Oxygen via webdav and I'd like to provide a link that opens a similar URL in the default web browser. Is there any way to do this? Ideally I'd like to be able to modify the link slightly before opening it (adding a GET parameter, for example).

Thanks!

Re: Exist DB drops DOCTYPE on Save

Yeah, I tried that, but since oxygen uses the class attribute to style DITA content in the editor, and the class attribute is applied via the DTD, which is assigned using catalog files, which are mapped using public ID's (ie. doctypes), the author tab is missing any styling unless I add a DOCTYPE wi...

Exist DB drops DOCTYPE on Save

This is likely an exist issue, but I'm hoping someone here knows a quick fix. When using the Exist data connector (either via xmlrpc or webdav), the DOCTYPE declaration gets dropped on file creation/save. This causes Oxygen to treat the file as text vs in Authoring mode. Anyone know a way to prevent...

The reason for the custom protocol is that I can't remap the http:// protocol to Oxygen since it's already being used by the browser. I'll take a look at the StreamHandler solution. Thanks for the pointer.
