Publishing Templates customization: "page-templates-fragments" folder

Hi, I'm upgrading a custom Publishing Template from Oxygen 20 to 22 and noticed that there is a new folder: com.oxygenxml.webhelp.responsive/oxygen-webhelp/page-templates-fragments . I could not find any documentation about this folder. Is this folder relevant for customization like com.oxygenxml.we...

Re: Track changes: Accept all changes in map scope?

Hi Radu,

Thanks for the pointer. Is there a way to create a find & replace Author Action that uses that regular expression? I wouldn't want authors to be able to accidentally change such a complex regex ;-)

Track changes: Accept all changes in map scope?

Hi,

Is there a way to accept all changes in a whole DITA document, that is, in the scope of a DITA map? Can I use the respective Author Action (which one?) and automatically call it for each topic in the map scope?

Kind regards,
Frank

Re: Track changes in Dita Map PDF

Hi Radu,

Thanks for testing. Yes, we have a customized PDF plugin that renders some of the metadata from the map as visible content, for example, keywords and abstract. I will have a look if (and where) the processing instructions get lost.

Hello,

Is there a way to customize the track changes colors in Oxygen Author mode with CSS? I only found instructions for Web Author: Default track changes color in Web Author 19.1.

Hi Radu, I found out that the culprit isn't Oxygen but the FOP processor that tries to validate each SVG file against an online DTD. <!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/1.1/DTD/svg11.dtd" [ I've found a post from Ixiasoft with a suggested solution .

Code Templates: Add filter

Hi,

As Oxygen comes with lots of already built-in code templates these days I would like to be able to filter the templates, for example by editor. Even better, if I could export the filtered results (see Exporting Code Templates for a related request).

Hi, I like the idea of creating a custom framework extension for sharing instead of copying a whole framework. What I don't understand yet is how the connection to the base framework is kept. I suppose it's settings like the following in the .framework file: <field name="extendedPersistentObjectKey"...

Deactivate online validation schemas

Hi,

When using Oxygen 21.1 for the first time I got asked whether Oxygen can fetch validation schemas from remote URLs. I have agreed to trust all sources but now want to change this because I'm using Oxygen in a restricted environment with no internet access. How can I do this?

Re: WebHelp customization: Localized text in HTML fragment

Hi Anton,

The usual way in XML is to use one or both of the following entities:

Carriage return: &#xD;
Line feed: &#xA;

I haven't tested this, though.
