Cannot get a TOC tree with more than 1 level

Although I have made extensive use of oXygen for over a decade, I have never had to create WebHelp output. I am now working on a large project where the customer requires this output for a huge documentation set. I have tried to generate output that looks like the oXygen online WebHelp but the TOC o...

Re: Running transformation on large set of files

Thanks, Adrian. The bulk of the work is done, so I am OK for now. If I need more switching back and forth I will use your approach of multiple projects looking at the same set of files.

Kind regards from Amsterdam

Re: Disabling Schematron

Hello Radu, Thanks for the info. I will check on my options to change the schematron rules or switch that validation off completely. The rule that is bothering me is "In cases where a topic contains only one paragraph, then it is preferable to include this text in the shortdesc element and leave the...

Re: Running transformation on large set of files

Hello Adrian, Thanks for the info. It works, but I would have liked a better mechanism for this. The Find/Replace in files command allows setting the filter per action, which is very useful when handling large folders with various types of files. For the transform, it would be very useful to have a ...

Running transformation on large set of files

I need to run (and often re-run) a transformation on a large number of XML files, so I am doing this from the Project view. As the files are located in several subdirectories inside the main folder, I would like to use something like the Find/Replace dialog where I can tell oXygen which types of fil...

Disabling Schematron

Short question: How do I disable Schematron ? I am working on a huge conversion project and there can be lots of things wrong with the DITA files that are produced. Unfortunately, the Problems window is filled with an enormous amount of warnings from Schematron, which are not at all relevant at this...

Re: Suppressing auto-generated metadata

Never mind, I found the options in the preferences. I was looking for the wrong keyword :-) It is listed as DITA prolog updater and I was looking for metadata and critdates, i.e. the results of the updating process.

Suppressing auto-generated metadata

Hello fellow <oXygen/> users I am preparing DITA materials for a demo. <oXygen/> automatically puts revision metadata into each topic, which is unwanted for my demo. I cannot find a way to switch off this behaviour. I know there are all kinds of extensions that can be programmed into the editor, but...

Re: Validating XD files

Hi Adrian, Thanks for the hint about the filename extension being mapped to a different editor. The validation no longer throws errors now. I am not concerned with the coloring of the xd:* elements. But there is one thing that does not seem to work yet: I am not yet getting the Elements catalog or t...

I am working on a large XML schema that is using the xd namespace - bound to http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema. Why the xs namespace is not used is unknown to me but there is no way I can change that. I am trying to make oXygen validate the file as if it were an xsd file but I fail to set the Doc typ...

Re: Newbie question on creating ANT scripts

I figured it out (passing the parameter). Creating a build that processes al files matching a pattern is still an open question, but not pressing at this time, and I am sure that will be fairly easy, too.

I know it should be possible to have <oXygen/> look at the root tag of an XML document to determine which DTD to use for validation but it does not work (yet). Is there a detailed description of what to include and what to remove from the association rules to make this work? I am developing an app i...
