Re: HTML5 (OT 2.5.2) restricting Nav output to a single chapter

Hello, The HTML transformation scenario comes from the DITA OT as is. As we did not customize that scenario, it is not possible to choose what content should the Table Of Contents include in the resulted output. In case you need to have this possibility, you should use the "DITA Map WebHelp Res...

Hello, Voluntary or involuntary, you might have tinkered with the default frameworks that come bundled with oXygen in the past and, somehow, you might have ended-up with a broken DITA OT 2.x framework.

Re: Move related topics to sidebar- XHTML output

Hi hamonwry, The DITA Open Toolkit 1.8.5 is an older, deprecated DITA OT which is no longer maintained. Therefore, unless you specifically need to use that older version, I suggest using the DITA OT 2.x Unfortunately, as XHTML transformation is a DITA OT specific transformation, not an oXygen specif...

Re: FOP version in Oxygen

Hi,

Oxygen XML v18.1 uses Apache FOP v2.1.
You can find this information in the oXygen menu Help > About (Libraries tab).

The latest version of oXygen (19.1) comes with FOP v2.2.

Re: Problems with keywords

Hi Jeremy,

Unfortunately, the indexer can not determine if words without accents (or other diacritics) are the same with words with diacritics.
The only workaround is to use both variations (with and without diacritics) as keywords.
