Re: Printing tracked changes/comments

Thanks very much, Radu, I'll try it. This is yet another incentive, however, to my team's upgrading to 2.0!

Re: Printing tracked changes/comments

Thanks, Radu. When I print to PDF now, new text marked with track-changes background color in the Oxygen editor prints, but not with highlighted background, thus it isn't demarcated from pre-existing text. We are on an older version of DITA-OT (1.65 I think). Are you saying if we upgrade to DITA 2.0...

Printing tracked changes/comments

I'm exploring the Track Changes feature of Oxygen Author. I want tracked changes to not only print in PDF but to retain the color they have in the Editor, or be marked by any color that sets off the deletion/insertion from the rest of the text. I know how to change the background color and/or font c...

Re: Customizing Responsive WebHelp

Everything works, except that padding-top is not the correct css setting. Changing padding-top simply adds padding above both logo and publication title. What I need is the setting that bumps publication title down in comparison to the logo, so that they are more or less aligned at the bottom edge. ...

Customizing Responsive WebHelp

Hi, I'm trying to customize Responsive WebHelp to make a minor modification in the output's appearance: The publication title is too high compared to my company logo. The logo is perhaps a bit large, and so the publication title needs to have padding on the top of approximately 12px. I used to do th...

Re: Smart copy-paste

Within the past few days, running the latest version of Oxygen with no reversion to the previous JRE, I have noticed that when I copy-paste content from MS Word the formatting is retained, including table data. Just now tried with Excel and it works as expected.

Seems to be fixed!

Re: Refreshing WebHelp with Feedback deployment

That is correct. However, all the files in the install folder at the root are dated about three weeks ago (15/7/2015), and it's possible I did use version 16.1 on that date to generate the help. I don't clear the output directory before running transformations, so I'm sure it's a relic. I'll remove ...

Re: Changing default values for table creation

Hello Gary, First of all, you should make sure that you've saved the extension as external, for example in: OXYGEN_INSTALL_DIR\frameworks\ext_dita\ext_dita.framework This new ext_dita folder should contain all additional resources that your framework requires. All of your authors already have the b...

We will use that workaround in Author 17.0. It is strange, though, that the problem doesn't occur in Author 16.1.

I mainly customize the appearance of PDFs, an...
