Re: Webhelp Transformation issue

Thanks so much for all the information and the quick response! It'll be interesting to try to get good enough results without an onerous amount of manual intervention. Of course I realize there will be some degree of tweaking. I'm really just looking to round-trip from DITA to Confluence for technic...

Re: Webhelp Transformation issue

Hi, I'm hoping to export page content out of Confluence into DITA. I read your statement " I've just converted a couple hundred pages for documentation stored in a Confluence server to DITA and oXygen did brilliantly with the import as well as the process of helping clean up lots of content tha...

Re: create/reuse content component

OK, I see the part about the "ancestor elements of the current element" to quote the Oxygen documentation. So I cannot simply create a reusable component of some steps that I can insert into another task, within other steps that are contained in the <steps></steps> element? That's what get...

create/reuse content component

Hi, I tried to select the content I want to put in a separate component for reuse using the mouse in Author mode as the instructions say. The content I selected were a number of steps in a task. Although the steps I wanted were highlighted, the end result was a separate component with the entire tas...

store content intended for CSH in XML file - use resourceid?

Hi The UI Engineer has been tasked to create what he refers to as "help balloons". These balloons are known to others as context sensitive help that's launched from a dialog box by clicking the popular question mark - result is content displayed in a new window. I jumped on to the bandwago...

Oxygen 15.1 -customize WebHelp output

Basic question. When using 14.2, I customized my WebHelp output by editing toc.css and tocWDiv.css files (frames and internal frames) to edit such things as productTitle, to add an image before text generated by map name etc. Without going into details of how I messed up, I am now in the position of...

Webhelp output - file distribution

Hi, super basic question, sorry. What files do I distribute to Engineering for the WebHelp? Do I give them all contents from the out/webhelp directory for distribution? That's what I'm thinking I do but as a newbie require reinforcement. :D

Thanks!

Sounds like a good plan. I'll email you a screen shot. We might be talking about two different areas.

Re: Webhelp output - remove shaded box from topic title

Thanks for trying but that doesn't do what I need either. I had tried that earlier on and just tried it again. I'll keep trial and error-ing it. I did remove the top lighter gray box at one point and there must be another element to edit for the underlaying darker gray box. When/if I figure it out, ...

Re: Webhelp output - remove shaded box from topic title

Thanks but I don't have the resources\skins\desktop subdirs at all. My toc.css is in resources\css. I'm using Oxygen 14.2. I did find the code you posted in the toc.css but and removed it but it made no difference. When I choose a topic from the navigation pane, and it displays in the content area (...

Webhelp output - remove shaded box from topic title

I would like to remove the box that appears around the topic title when displayed in the Content area if you choose the With Frames option. I assumed I'd find something in web help_topic.css but so far I can't. I've done a little trial and error. Should I be looking in toc.css? Which element do I ed...

Re: WebHelp output - font change for Product title

Thanks for the help. I had also discovered the post about inserting an image before the title text, which was something else I wanted to do. I was able to follow to take advantage of that info, yay. It's the time-consuming aspect of identifying which elements to work on that's a bit daunting. So pos...

WebHelp output - font change for Product title

Using Oxygen 14.2, I was able to edit tocWDiv.css to change the background for productTitle to my choice of color. How do I change the style of font and its color for the text that appears in that box? I see the productTitle h1 definitions but there's nothing setting a font color. Is this the text t...
