Webhelp Glossary help

Using a topichead and glossrefs (with print="yes") to individual glossentry dita files I was able to get my pdf glossary to look exactly as expected: Glossary title with individual entries to browse thru. When I transformed to CHM & Webhelp the output was not as expected. In my searches for solution...

Customize WebHelp

Is there a way to specify a different folder for WebHelp customizations? For PDF transforms the parameter dita.dir can be changed to specify a different DITA-OT or customization.dir can be change to specify a different customization folder. I have a few font changes and a header logo that I would li...

Thanks Radu, outputFile.base works great. Delivers the correctly named file to the right place without any extra baggage.

Another interesting feature (?). Regardless of the value under the Output tab, Output folder with a value for outputFile the pdf lands in the parent folder (location of ditamap).

Re: Script to process multiple Transformations

Hi Radu, I tried the outputFile parameter and had some odd results. The transformation ran and created the correctly named pdf but then opened the pdf from the previous unmodified transformation (the file that had the unmodified file name). At first I thought the previous transformation was the one ...

Script to process multiple Transformations

Hi, I have a project that includes a dozen or more pdf targets from a single ditamap, a dozen transformations (each using a different ditaval), and a few dozen dita files. Conditional profiling takes care of which topics to include with which pdf targets. I currently run each transformation, change ...

The first 2 are OT 1.5.3 that came with Oxygen, one in the Oxygen install and the second in the same folder as my project content files. The second is where I've be...

Re: Creating subtitles on first page from ditamap

Thanks Radu,

I had one bit of trouble. In front-matter-attr.xsl in
<xsl:attribute-set name="__frontmatter__owner__container">
the top attribute was set to 210, effectively pushing the content off the page. I set it to 20 and there my content was. All better.

What kind of customizing is needed? I too have a table (several) in a topic that is part of a larger ditamap. Only a few tables needs to be oriented to landscape. How can this be accomplished?

Re: Conditional processing

Thanks for the quick response. Actually I like your solution (a single ditamap for multiple output) better than my plan to create multiple datamaps. The DITAVAL filter file is new to me, I'll research that. I'm not clear on how to implement the DITAVAL in the transformation scenarios but you have de...
