Cannot get custom CSS to work...

oXygen XML v22. I simply cannot get custom CSS to work in either online or PDF output. Trust me -- I've been all over the oXygen XML online help (OLH) and the web for the variants. I can normally work through problems like this but I'm completely stuck. I've resorted to customizing an oXygen XML tra...

Re: Add Bookmarks capability to projects?

Thanks Radu. BUT -- wrong sort of bookmark. I want to be able to quickly return to a particular project or external resource. Essentially the same way that web browser bookmarks work.

Add Bookmarks capability to projects?

There are certain files and external resources -- for example, specific oXygen XML online help topics, DITA-OT resource files, web sites that explain how to perform certain tasks, and the like ...

Re: Version 22 online help returns no result for reltable?

A search for relationship table does get me where I'd hope to go by searching for reltable.

Still seems to me that a search for reltable should be an alias for relationship table?

Ability to interrupt runaway commands

Oops -- just experienced an unpleasant learning experience. In oXygen XML Editor v22 I accidentally right-clicked on a project folder and chose Open.

Re: keydef: why plural keys and keywords?

Thanks as always, Radu. What this newcomer was thinking, obviously incorrectly, was that keydefs and keywords could be "paired" so that, say, summer could be paired with hot . The element that referenced the keywords could then be formed so as to replace paired elements. Stated another way, a sort o...

Re: Make Format and indent remove spaces from blank lines?
