Re: Topicref with external target doesn't open in new browser tab

Hello, We tested this behavior but we could not reproduce the reported issue - the PDF resource opens in its own separate tab, both when it is referred by the topicref element through xref and through href. This is also the default behavior in the latest version of oXygen. What specific version of o...

The booktitle/booktitlealt elements content is still present in the PDF output, even when I set the parameter's value to "yes". Just make sure that you are actually using a newer nightly build and not an older one. ...

Re: CSS-based PDF on wrong page header

Hi, The default content of the page headers are defined through the default .css files that oXygen comes with. More specific, according to the "Default Page Definitions" section from the "DITA-OT CSS Publishing to PDF Plugin" User-Guide , the pages/headers are defined in the p-pages-and-headers.css ...

Re: Overflow Wrap in Tables Overriding Hyphenation Rules

Hi Niels,

I logged this in our internal tracking system, so we will investigate if this behavior comes from the PDF reader, or if there is something we could do to make the hyphenated words searchable in the PDF.
We will update this thread once we reach to a conclusion.
