Oxygen Enterprise vs. Professional

Hi, When I purchased my license for Oxygen, I had difficulty determining which version to get. I considered getting the Enterprise version, but the information I found describing the differences between it and the Professional version was meager. It indicated only one difference: that the Enterprise...

Problems with two DITAmaps open

I noticed a problem with one of my parent topics. It was showing four subtopics in the table of contents, but in the content pane, it showed ten topics. I know that this happens when you reuse a topic within the same ditamap, but I hadn't reused this topic in my ditamap. I checked the Oxygen UI, and...

Re: Inconsistency in the oXygen XML Editor UI

I see what you mean, but look at it this way; when you use the terms "Append Child", you are using XML-speak (language from the XML domain). But when you say "Insert After", you are not using XML-speak. Instead, you are using general terms. You have lost meaning by speaking gener...

How to Get Text to not Wrap in Text Editor Mode

I spend a lot of time bouncing between Author Mode and Text Mode .

Hi, I used a parent topic twice in two sub-ditamaps, and discovered that in the WebHelp Classic output, the links to both of the parent topic's subtopics appeared combined. I finally solved the problem by using the "copy-to" attribute in the topicref in the second ditamap (for the second p...
