Hello Radu, Yes, there does seem to be a fork process in our build file. See code below. Can you tell me where to set the memory settings in the code. I tried adding a memory setting to the <arg line/> attribute below but that did not work. <target name="transform.fo2pdf.fop" if="use.fop.pdf.formatt...

Hey Guys, I can't seem to get rid of this problem. I've gone back to generating docs with Oxygen after more than a year of "doing other stuff," and my Java heap space error is back on some of my larger docs (645 pgs). I tried pumping up the heap setting to 4096 but it still crashes although seemingl...

Re: Japanese characters do not display in body of PDF (DITA)

Unfortunately, no luck with the complex version. It seems odd that the chapter and section heads, which are simple topic files with just a title, appear correctly in Japanese, but the body text does not. I suppose that tells me that the Japanese font is installed correctly.

Any ideas?

Re: Japanese characters do not display in body of PDF (DITA)

Thanks Sorin.

Tried the simplified version. Didn't work :( Now trying the complex version.

BTW: I forgot to mention that the Japanese characters in the body do render nicely in oXygen, Author/Text view.

Thx,

Would it be possible to call a command line zip utility via the External Tools menu item, and zip a ditamap and all reference files. If so, what would the syntax be? This is related to my topic5501 post.

Thanks, Radu. I did try Swordfish but could not get it to work. Word on the street is that there may be an xliff round-trip tool included in a future version of the DITA-OT. That would be sweet.

Hello, It would be great if Oxygen could transform a ditamap (regular ditamap or bookmap) as a single xml file and then back to the ditamap. This would be extremely useful for translations. Ideally, the single file would be in xliff format, but I think xml would do too. An out-of-the-box transformat...

Using oXygen, is there a way to transform a bookmap and all its topics into a single xml file and back? We want to send our bookmaps off to our translation vendor but the topic files are scattered around in hundreds of directories.

Re: No PDF transform after Java update

Found the problem. In fact, it may not have been the Java update but the Oxygen update to V12.1 I did after the Java update. Anyway, to solve the problem, I simply copied the build.xml file from the DITA-OT directory into my custom directory. That did it.
