Re: smart paste from Google Docs

Re: Filtering list container elements in Insert Content Refe

Yes, I was aware of the list item option, but that's not helpful if I want to reuse an entire list. Option 2 sounds perfect. Thanks.

Filtering list container elements in Insert Content Referenc

Is it possible to extend the list of target types in the Insert Content Reference dialog? I would like to be able to filter on list container types: <ol> and <ul> as well as <li>.

Thanks,

Re: Paragraph nested in conref'd section

Thank you for the reference to the spec. The proposed workaround isn't valid DITA because you can't nest a section inside another section, but this one is: <section id="section_wpx_4ml_2l"> <p id="p_yff_pml_2l">Concept definition.</p> </section> <section conref="#concept_urm_4ml_2l/section_wpx_4ml_2...

When I create a cross-reference to a topic, the topic title is automatically displayed as the link text. However, if I create a cross-reference to a section or example with a title, that section or example title is not displayed as the link text. Is this a known defect or can I configure oXygen to s...

Re: smart paste from Google Docs

I tried again copying directly from Google Docs instead of writing to a Word document and that converted lists correctly. However, paragraphs marked as "Normal text" are not enclosed in a <p> tag and are thus invalid. See "Some text" and "More text" below. Also, is there any way to mark up code samp...

smart paste from Google Docs

A common scenario is for developers to provide content in Google Docs. However, when I paste lists from Google Docs directly or from any format generated from Google Docs into a DITA topic, the list formatting is lost and the bullets or list numbers are included as part of the content. Is there any ...

support for DITA-OT plug-ins in transformation scenarios

If I add a plug-in to the DITA-OT is it possible to have the output type show up as one of the DITA transformation types in the DITA OT transformation scenarios? For example, the DITA 4 Publishers project contains plug-ins that I would like to invoke from oXygen.
