Oxygen 20.1 Webhelp compatible with old DITA OT versions?

Hello, we are using Oxygen 20.1 with a custom framework and DITA OT 2.4.4. Because of our custom framework, the Oxygen plugins (in this case WebHelp Responsive) are still based on Oxygen 18. Now I would like to update the WebHelp to the latest version to make use of the latest WebHelp features intro...

Re: Usage of high resolution images in PDF

Thanks Radu. The PDF from DITA using CSS feature has me interested for a while. This is probably another reason to consider this.

Re: Usage of high resolution images in PDF

I tried to make use of the scalefit attribute. This works to fit very large screenshots nicely in the available space (that is the text column) but does not work well for small screenshots. Small screenshots are stretched to fit the space. I would rather not have a system where authors have to decid...

Usage of high resolution images in PDF

Hello, in the past, we created screenshots with SnagIt on Windows in 96 DPI and inserted them into our topics. Now we would like to create screenshots on Mac with retina display. This gives us a much more detailed screenshot in 144 DPI. When we convert those high resolution images to 96 DPI, it gets...

Re: Spell check - casing after abbreviations

This is a very old thread, but I have the same issue. The spell check falsely highlights casing after abbreviations. In my case, after German abbreviations ("z.B.") lowercase words are highlighted. This is also the case for every other language I think. I don't want to deactivate the "...

Re: PDF: Inline images centered

Thank you for investigating this.

Regarding your workaround I should have given more information. We use a custom framework with Oxygen 19 (soon 20.1) and use Apache FOP as our formatter. This is why we cannot use a custom CSS at the moment.

Is there a workaround for FOP?

Hello, we are using a lot of inline images in our documentations. We use mostly small icons but space is often an issue.

We've found the reason for our issues or at least we were able to pin it to a certain event. We've updated the DITA OT to 2.4.4 a few months ago. During that process we must have introduced errors. Even though all builds until then never had any errors in the log, some functionality was broken. One ...

Re: GUI bug when inserting draft-comments

Thanks for reminding me of this. I had a quick check with Oxygen 20 (latest maintenance version 2018042410) and it still does not seem to work correctly. Maybe I am missing something here.

Maybe anybody else can check this.

Thanks for your answer Costin. The validation check of the sub-ditamap reports that the key definitions cannot be found. This is as expected, since there are no keyword ditamaps referenced in the sub-ditamap. But I would have hoped that the "Root map" setting would also be taken into accou...
