Responsive Webhelp : Add footer with links to topics

Hi, We have frontmatter and glossary content in the ditamap that we'd like to include in the footer of the responsive webhelp. We can easily hide this content from the wh-tiles. However, it's trickier to then add these two hidden sections as links in the footer. You do this on this page: https://www...

SVG processing in HTML webhelp

hello!

We'd like to add a CSS @import statement in SVG files to reference the skin.css files used in the HTML output. Can this be accomplished by updating templates in the Oxygen Webhelp plugin or should we look into DITA-OT file processing logic?

Thanks,

Hi again Alin,

It turns out that something indeed changes with the font when the plugin copies the font into the output.

In the plugin, the SourceSansPro-Regular.otf file is 230 KB.
In the output, the SourceSansPro-Regular.otf file is 358 KB.

Have you seen this before?
