Re: Replicating Profiling/Filtering Behaviour in Web Author

Thanks for your reply. 1. Yes, I think we could use subject schemes - how would I make this work? Nonetheless, I'll look into the options customisation - honestly I don't mind how, its just to have a means of expressing custom values in Web Author. 2. So am I to understand that there is an issue to ...

Replicating Profiling/Filtering Behaviour in Web Author

Hi, I have a few interrelated questions about simulating content profiling and filtering in Web Author, to behave as it does in XML Editor, in the content development and pre-publishing phase. As it stands, I have extended the DITA rng-topics and map document types to have a stripped down version of...

Re: XML to XML transformation with Feature Differentiation (ditaval)

Forgive me if I'm being naive; but isn't what is being described by B-E-N a case of applying conditional profiling? For example, whether at topic level or content-level, you apply metadata (e.g. product attribute) to be either larger product, smaller product or [larger product smaller product] such ...

Re: Downsizing Web Author DITA Frameworks

Thanks! That worked perfectly - I would never have assumed that adding an extended version would override rather than add as a new framework. A couple of further questions: I want to replicate the markdown-to-dita feature that exists in Author to enable my developer colleagues to write in markdown (...

Downsizing Web Author DITA Frameworks

Hi, I am trying to strip down the frameworks/templates available to use in my company's implementation of Web Author because it gets confusing and is unnecessarily cluttered when we won't be using most of them. I have removed the frameworks like TEI in the regular way in Web Author administration; b...

Re: Allowing external XML/RNG file to dictate optional content for web custom framework

Hi there, Actually I have always had dafaultValues.xml file in the framework, that is why it is confusing. I will send a copy of my framework to the support email - it might let you identify the issue. It is worth mentioning that when I use @import of choices.css in the main css, in web author it gi...

Re: Allowing external XML/RNG file to dictate optional content for web custom framework

Hi there - thanks for that - really helped. I am almost there it seems but still having some issues which are proving particularly problematic for web author. Firstly, I have made the attribute into an an element, and IF I specify an alternate file, then it pulls through the values and it's perfect ...

Re: Allowing external XML/RNG file to dictate optional content for web custom framework

I'm afraid this hasn't quite worked for me. My original setup was (a stripped down version to give an example): RelaxNG schema definition of the main elements - with choices 'hardcoded' into the schema which as you can understand isn't ideal. <define name="root"> <element name="system...

Multiple custom frameworks not being detected

I don't know if I've done something fundamentally wrong, but I've recreated the two frameworks time and again to test it and the same problem keeps repeating. Originally I was working with only one custom framework, but now I'm working with a second, neither the desktop Editor is recognising both at...

Re: Allowing external XML/RNG file to dictate optional content for web custom framework

Hi there, Thanks for that idea - and very close to what I was originally trying with the values of the combobox function, but couldn't work out the referencing of a different file. The ability to override default values is probably the key thing here so it allows a template to be non-specific while ...

Allowing external XML/RNG file to dictate optional content for web custom framework

Hi, I have a predicament on optional content that comes out of custom frameworks for Web Author only allowing use of a single schema, and that which must be embedded in the custom framework files. Here is my scenario (that will be common across my custom frameworks): I have successfully created simp...

Video guide on XML Catalogs

It's not quite a feature request for the actual tool, but a request for some demo on how to make the most of XML catalogs. I believe it is a powerful tool to overcome the shortcoming of custom frameworks relying on only one schema rather than the ability to use multiple connected schemas, which norm...
