Re: Advice on translations

Hi, I just saw your forum entry. I am surprised that your managers might want to drop the translation agency. It might be, of course, a solution to have internal reviewers translate your topics, but please, if I may say this, use a translation memory system. This is not the forum to make any suggest...

Re: Progress indicator for "Validate and check for completeness"

It would be really great if this ran in the background, because it keeps me from using Oxygen for anything else while it's running. Hi, We have the same issue that cbrzeski reported. Is there a chance that the validation process may run in the background one day? Or is this already the case and I'v...

Re: Keywords not visible in output (PDF/WebHelp) when using sub-ditamaps

Hi all, Regarding this hopefully soon implemented feature I would like to add that it would be extremely useful if the "Validate and Check for Completeness" dialog contained an option that allows you to determine from which ditamap the keys are gathered - in this case the root map.

insert.image action shown for glossBody?

Hi, If I understood the insert.image author action correctly, it should check whether an image may be inserted as a child element at the selected position. The default XPath is oxy:allows-child-element("*", "class", " topic/image ") However, for the glossBody element, the action shows in the Content...

Hi Ionela, Benjamin asked me to check. Unfortunately, we cannot reproduce a clean installation of Oxygen XML, at least I wouldn't know how, but I've managed to set the original framework using the built-in DITA OT. We don't use VMs on which we could use a clean installation for these purposes. I've ...

Re: How to automatically open PDF output file using other formatter than Apache FOP?

Hi Adrian,

Yes, switching to Apache FOP as processor solves the issue (I had to import the root.processing_fop.xsl and the index_fop.xsl files to the custom.xsl though to make it work again. ;-)).

Japanese PDF layout issues

For example, we have serious issues with improper line breaks, probably due to the fact that there are normally no empty spaces in Japanese, but I'm just guessing here. Example: the following text block breaks t...
