Mac accented characters make window uneditable

Hi there, Running OSX Mojave, 10.14.5 with oXygen 21.0, build 2019022207. After I type in an accented character using the press and hold Mac method (https://support.apple.com/en-ca/HT201586), the editor window no longer listens to keyboard input. I have to click the save button and then exit and res...

Using ${answer} with xpath_eval

Hi there, In a document template, I prompt the user for their id value using the ${ask} editor variable like so: <name ref="pers:${ask('Your xml:id', String,'', @user_id)}"> Which works perfectly well. However, when I try to use that value within an xpath_eval, it fails: ${xpath_eval(doc('${people}'...

Determining overlapping comment end points in author

Hi there, In a project, we are using oXygen author mode comments to annotate bits of text; we then run the file through a transformation that takes all of the comment PIs and turns them into TEI anchor tags. However, one issue is that overlapping comments are ambiguous in respect to where they end: ...

Re: Getting java pop-up in front of oXygen (ANT)

Hi Radu, Ah, that makes sense. Thanks for clarifying. In your javascript code from the ANT build file also create a Swing JFrame without content, show it, and on top of the frame show your JOptionPane, then after the JOptionPane is closed hide also the parent Swing JFrame. But this might not fix the...

Re: Getting java pop-up in front of oXygen (ANT)

Hi Radu, Thanks for the suggestions! I'm slightly confused by this bit, however: The first parameter you send as null to the JOptionPane is the parent component. Unfortunately once the DITA OT publishing starts, it runs in another process so you cannot pass to it a reference to the main Oxygen frame...

Getting java pop-up in front of oXygen (ANT)

I'm using oXygen build 2018022209 and I'm using embedded java scripts to receive user input. I can't use oXygen editor variables for this, because some of the information (like passwords) needs to be secure and, as far as I can tell, passing an editor variable through to ANT in oXygen echoes out som...

Re: how to select folders with ${ask()} editor variable

Hi there,

I am wondering about the status of the directory option of the ${ask()} variable. I am a similar position as above, where I am creating a downloadable package that uses ANT and XSLT to run a suite of tools against a user's project. These users are likely to be non-technical.

Best,
Joey
