Framework failure for files named "build*.xml"?

My apologies if this is a known bug. It was just brought to my attention by one of my clients. Environment: Oxygen Editor v18 and v19 standalone on Windows. We are having trouble editing files with names of the form "[Bb]uild*.xml". When such files are opened, the correct framework is sele...

Re: element insertion with custom pseudo class

Alex, AHA! In the course of making up a demo framework, I have discovered the problem. You may wish to enter this as a bug to be fixed in a future release. Or not. It turns out that the second sub-action DID have an activation XPath: a single line-feed character left over after deleting the XPath wh...

Re: element insertion with custom pseudo class

Hi Alex, Thank you for getting back to me. Your possible explanation (that the XPaths are tested only once) had occurred to me as well, so neither sub-action has an activation XPath. Only the top level action. However, the SetPseudoClassOperation call takes an XPath expression argument to identify t...

element insertion with custom pseudo class

My client has a custom framework with many Author actions to insert XML fragments. They also use pseudo classes to modify the display of several elements on a per-element (rather than per-document) level, mostly to show or hide form controls which allow editing of attributes. They would like to be a...

Re: WebApp Autosave and Smartquotes bugs

If anyone needs an autosave workaround before oxygen releases one, this seems to work great. Add the following to your framework.js file, replacing "X" with the number of minutes between saves: setInterval( function() { workspace.currentEditor.saveAction.actionPerformed(null); }, X * 60000...

Re: WebApp Autosave and Smartquotes bugs

Thank you! I'm sure I can rig up an autosave for myself without too much trouble. What does "very soon" mean for the 18.0 release? If it will be within the next week or so, I'm happy to wait. If it will be months, then I would like to take you up on your kind offer of a maintenance build. ...

WebApp Autosave and Smartquotes bugs

I believe that I have found two bugs in the WebApp. Hoping for confirmation and, perhaps, an ETA on fixes. 1) Setting the autosave options in the WebApp's options.xml file seems to have no effect. No autosave. Will it be implemented soon? 2) Smartquotes replacement works beautifully with "Track...

Re: Toolbars and context menus in WebApp

Would "custom Java operations" include "ro.sync.ecss.extensions.commons.operations.InsertOrReplaceTextOperation"? I have a stripped-down test framework which contains only a single action. I've removed all older versions of Oxygen from my dev machine, so it should be picking up w...

Toolbars and context menus in WebApp

What is the secret to getting custom toolbars and context menus to appear in the WebApp? I can see from the sample frameworks that it is possible. But the toolbars in my custom framework do not show. Nor can I find any code in the samples which would seem to make it happen. Tracing through the Tomca...

Re: Future of the Author Component?

Thank you for the response. My understanding is that Chrome support for NPAPI will soon go away completely; there will be no way to enable it. And while I have found the Author Component to be quite solid under Firefox, I've found it to be, um, not so bulletproof under IE. (I'm sure that's IE's prob...

Future of the Author Component?

Given Chrome's phase-out of NPAPI support and the general move to mobile devices, what is the future of the Author Component? Of the WebApp? I have a client who would like to move to an all-web configuration. The WebApp does not currently meet their authoring needs, but getting the Author Component ...

Re: Additional css support (justify, first line, indent)

Has there been any movement on this issue in the intervening years? I have a client who is very upset at the apparent lack of support for hanging indent in the editor. Should I tell him that support is forthcoming? Or that it will not happen in the foreseeable future? Thanks.

Re: Selecting among CSS alternatives by hotkey

Thank you for the reply. I think the pseudo class suggestion will work. As it happens, the two CSSs currently differ only in that one element is hidden in one of them, just as in your example. (In fact, that one is implemented by @import-ing the other CSS and overriding that one element's style.) So...

Selecting among CSS alternatives by hotkey

My apologies if this has been covered before... My client wants a hotkey which will toggle between 2 CSS stylesheets in Author mode. The stylesheets are set up in our custom framework -- the users can switch back and forth using the "Author CSS Alternatives" toolbar dropdown. The client ju...
