How to show conditional text colors in PDF

Using the built-in DITA PDF transform, the colors assigned to content tagged as conditional do not appear in the resulting PDF. This makes it less useful when wanting to send a draft out to review by others who do not have the editing tool. Is this expected, or should it work and am I maybe missing ...

Re: How to un-join table cells?

Although - some feedback here regarding usability - this is still laborious when you have many cells to join. If there were just a "join" button which joined all the currently selected cells, that would be better. I have an earlier post also regarding select / copy / paste of cell ranges, ...

How to un-join table cells?

Once you have joined some cells, either row or column, there seems to be no straightforward way of un-joining them again, short of editing the XML.

Am I missing something in some menu, or does that function not exist?

best regards, Dan

Re: How do you type a non-breaking space in the Editor?

Thanks - I seem to have got it working, by duplicating one that existed already and modifying it.

Ctrl-Shift-Space is now the non-breaking space.

Renaming columns breaks joined cells

If you have a table where you have joined some row cells, the XML syntax uses the column names to indicate which cells are straddled. Now if you rename a column in the colspecs, the straddle breaks, because the tool does not also rename all the references to that column name. See below where "n...

Profiling does not highlight when a table row is made condit

When using profiling and a complete table row has been tagged with otherprops="tagname", the color highlighting only affects the text. It would be better if the whole row was highlighted, so it is clear what is happening. Currently, there is no visible difference between making a table row...

When in a dialog such as File->Save, I'm used to being able to navigate around the hierarchy using the mouse, where Enter will have some effect such as entering the currently highlighted directory.

Bug: Triple-click and overtype in <title> fails on <fig> and

OxygenXML 16.1. If you triple click text in say a <p> or a <li> in the Editor, and then overtype, the element stays as a <p> or <li> and the text gets replaced, as you'd expect. But: If you do this on a <title> for a figure, the <title> gets replaced by a <p>. If you do this for a <title> for a tabl...

How to copy-paste groups of cells, not whole column

In the Editor (16.1), if I try to select a group of cells (e.g. a selection of cells from a column), then copy and paste them in a different column (or another table), they always get pasted in as a row, and lose their vertical alignment.

Command line to execute a PDF transform?

Is there any way to call OxygenXML from the command line and get it to execute a PDF transformation on a file automatically?

I would like to do some batch processing, and it seems laborious to have to open the GUI and press a button each time.
