Licensing restrictions for the Oxygen Webhelp transforms?

Hi,

We'd like to use one of the Webhelp transforms as the basis for some documentation we include as part of our product. Are there any restrictions we should be aware of? Of course every writer at my company holds a valid Oxygen license. Thanks in advance for your help.

Testing the input map name

Hi, I'd like to add a link to the top of the webhelp TOC. If my input map is called foo.ditamap, I want the link to point to the output of bar.html. If my input map is called bar.ditamap, I want the link to point to the output of foo.html. So far I have this, but I'm not sure what I am able to test:...

Turning off 'track changes' adds two blank lines to the end of the XML file

If I disable 'track changes' in a file, the file always has two blank lines at the bottom. This triggers a complaint from Git when I am trying to commit the file, and I have to either manually fix it by going into text mode and removing the lines, or commit with --no-verify. It's a bit of a nuisance...

Re: UI issues after screen resolution change

FYI, going back to the default fonts and turning off antialiasing did not solve this problem. I'm afraid to update to the Java 8 version because of my coworker's experience with that version, so I guess I am a bit stuck.

Best practices with Oygen "Track Changes" and Git

We've run into some issues where "Track Changes" seems to change XML files in wide-sweeping ways, such as completely rewrapping the whole file. These types of changes make it difficult to apply this type of commit to multiple Git branches. Is there any way we can limit the 'damage' that turning on T...

Re: UI issues after screen resolution change

Thanks. I haven't done that because you have an email thread going with a colleague who is experiencing crashes with the Java 8 version, so I guess I will stick with the devil I know for now. Some additional information: I am on a 13" Macbook Pro Retina, and my external display is a 27" monitor. The...

UI issues after screen resolution change

I'm on a MBP 13" with a 27" external monitor. I often need to connect and disconnect from the monitor, which changes my screen resolution substantially. Almost invariably when this happens, many of the UI elements (such as the tabs) change to having a black background (along with the black text) so ...

Re: Oxygen 17 DITA-OT transform problems

Redoing the config and the transcenarios from scratch seems to solve the problem. Thanks!

Re: Oxygen 17 DITA-OT transform problems

Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to this. The idea of resetting everything and starting over has been a bit daunting. :D Our DITA-OT is version 1.85 and lives in a Git repository that we all clone locally. We have created and exported transformation scenarios in Oxygen which point to this D...

Oxygen 17 DITA-OT transform problems

We are using DITA-OT 1.8.5, and have configured Oxygen scenarios to use our own DITA-OT for transforms. These work fine in Oxygen 16. When I try to run them in Oxygen 17, I get this error for HTML5-based transform: System ID: /Users/misty/docs/cloudera.ditamap Scenario: D4P Input file: /Users/misty/...

Re: Detect topics that are not in the map, during transforma

Thanks Radu, I've followed the issue on GitHub. As a follow-up question, can I somehow run the Oxygen-specific validation using the Oxygen SDK or any other scriptable mechanism? Is there a way to do it at the command line using the JAR files?

Detect topics that are not in the map, during transformation

Hi, During validation, there is an option to "Report links to topics not referenced in DITA maps." I'm looking for a way to run the same check during transformation, and get a warning if a topic is missing from the DITA maps. I can't find a DITA-OT flag / property that corresponds to this setting. I...

Re: Customize formatting behavior

Hi Adrian, thanks for answering my questions. I'd like to explore the question of the <p> tags on their own line a bit further. Even OASIS has the opening <p> in its own line in their example in the reference for the <p> element itself: <p> It is probable that <q>temporary</q> or <q>new</q> stars, a...

Customize formatting behavior

We recently moved our XML source to Git and had the "smart" idea to run an XML formatting script across it. It looked fine with spot checks so we imported that into Git. Afterward we noticed some quirks to do with whitespace. Some of these are real, and others seem to be to do with the way that oXyg...

Re: Trailing space on empty lines

Thanks for your reply. In the meantime, I have added the following client-side pre-commit hook to my Git repo: # fix trailing whitespace for file in `git diff-index --check --cached $against -- | grep '^[^+-]' | grep -o '^.*[0-9]\+:'` ; do file_name=`echo ${file} | awk -F ':' {'print $1'}` line_numb...

Trailing space on empty lines

In text mode (I haven't confirmed in Author mode), if I am indented and want to create a new blank line, the blank line has trailing spaces matching my indent level. I am able to turn this off by turning off Smart Indent, but then I have to manually indent after each carriage return. I have looked e...
