Re: Batch validation minor annoyances

So you are using Oxygen 18.1, right? In the Oxygen Help menu->About dialog there is also a "Build ID" value, something with a pattern like "yyyymmddhh". Could you tell me what that value is on your side? I constructed a validation problems filter which removes all reported probl...

Re: Batch validation minor annoyances

Hi thanks for the quick and detailed reply. I will try to reproduce this on my side. So the project references a folder which contains the DITA resources, right? Why did you not open the main DITA Map in the DITA Maps Manager and use the "Validate and check for completeness" action? It sho...

Batch validation minor annoyances

After upgrading from oXygen 17.1 to 18.1, there were a few new validation issues our DITA content was not conforming to, so I started to try and use the batch validation to cleanup our content a bit. Here are a few very minor quarks about the batch validation I just wanted to point out. I had opened...

Add space to end of line when line breaking?

Is there any way to add a space to the end of the line when oXygen breaks lines? When editing in Author mode, oxygen seems to automatically break long lines with no space at the end of the line. I recently ran into an issue in web based outputs in IE with this format. The DITA-OT passes the text lin...

Re: Track changes state reset after text mode.

Ahhh, perfect,

Code: Select all

WSEditorPageChangedListener
was exactly what I was looking for, thank you.
I was trying various things in

Code: Select all

WSEditorChangeListener
with no luck.
Now I can easily store the track change state when Author mode is left and then rest it when it goes back to Author mode.

Thanks again.

Change spell check style

It would be nice if there was a way to change the style or order of spelling mistake highlighting (red dotted line under words)

When you are adding text with track changes on, the underlined track change line obscures any spelling mistake indicators.

Thanks.

Re: File not found warning for <xref scope=external>

You could also use ValidationProblemsFilter class in a plug-in right? If contains "File not found" and ends with ".html", remove. The vertical scroll area will still show the marks but they wont appear in the validation results. Is it correct behaviour that the vertical area next...

Delete in-line element when Track Changes on.

I just noticed a little odd behavior that two writers have pointed out to me. When track changes are off, if you have the cursor immediately following an in-line start or end tag and press delete, the tag around content will correctly be removed. If track changes are on however, nothing happens. Is ...
