Re: "Open With" in Projects

The solution you pointed out in this post has worked great, but I've run into a problem opening just two file types: .xlsx, and .xlsm. I haven't run into any other file type that won't open in it's associated system app, except these. Could you try to duplicate this issue and let me know if you enco...

Re: Tooltips never disappear

The only tooltips I've seen hang are when hovering the mouse over an element tag in the author view. I'll send an example to the support email (I have no way of sharing an image on this forum).

Re: Tooltips never disappear

I am experiencing this problem in Oxygen Editor's author view. I'm not exactly sure how to reproduce it, but I'll be watching closely the next time it happens. It doesn't happen all the time, just every so often throughout any given day. So far as I've seen, it only happens in the author view window...

If you use paragraphs in your topic files, you can apply the same attribute to paragraphs in the file commons-attr.xsl. <xsl:attribute-set name="p" use-attribute-sets="common.block"> <xsl:attribute name="text-indent">0em</xsl:attribute> <xsl:attribute name="keep-together.within-page">always</xsl:att...

Did version 20 change the way in which content references are inserted from the reusable components view? Before version 20, when a conref was inserted from this view, they were inserted as a conref element. Now, they are being inserted as conkeyref elements. This causes our custom PDF transformatio...

Re: Integrator Error Oxygen Version 20

That was my assumption. After hearing back from you, I met with our IT department and found out that they had applied special permissions on our Oxygen 19 directory. I had them do the same to the Oxygen 20 folder, and that did the trick.

Thanks again.
