Is table scaling only available for CALS tables?

I checked the DITA specs and the scale attribute is only listed for CALS tables and not simple tables. We just started using this attribute and like it a lot. But we just noticed that only CALS tables scale and not the simple tables. We are using Oxygen version 18 and the scale attribute is availabl...

Re: othertype notes using different note images

We only needed one custom warning, So I just used the stock settings for "other" and modified the artwork path. <variable id="other Note Image Path">Customization/OpenTopic/common/artwork/Pr...

Re: othertype notes using different note images

Thanks Radu, Yes, I am publishing to PDF with classic XSL-FO. This looks like a great solution, but need a little more help. We have multiple plugins for our different brands of products. Do we edit the main org.dita.pdf2 plugin? I placed the build_custom.xml file in the root folder of org.dita.pdf2...

Re: @conkeyref with @conref

We just ran into this problem. Our old system was on DITA 1.0 and the conkeyrefs worked there, we just upgraded to DITA 1.3 and the conkeyrefs "broke". We have several brands and were using keys to insert the brand name into notes that were then conreffed. Interested to see if there are any workarou...

Re: othertype notes using different note images

Ronser, Is this related to Proposition 65? If so, I have the same issue. They use the yellow triangle for the warning symbol. Our current format is for all warning types to be gray. So we need another option. We are just adding the symbol inline, so the styling looks a lot different. I was wondering...

Re: Add page break to topicref at map level

Thanks Dan,

We could use conrefs, but that would create two topics. We would like to just use one topic and control it at the map level.
The topicrefs in the map do have an outputclass available, I just can't find where to apply the code.

I have cross posted on the DITA-users site.

Thanks

Re: Having an issue with keys in some bookmeta elements of bookmaps

Thanks Radu!

I was not able to get it to work with a conkeyref on the postalcode element, but did get it to work by inserting a <keyword> element inside the <postalcode> element.
I applied the conkeyref to the <keyword> element.

We are using XDocs as a CCMS, that may be related to our change.

For the URL reference in front-matter.xsl we changed the code to:
