Re: Generate today's date in output

Thanks for the suggestions! I am generating PDF output, and new to XSL. Similar to the YEAR example that you provided, I found the format below online for an MM/DD/YY date, but it appears that you cannot simply paste this into the DITA; the transform fails. Can anyone tell me how to add this code in...

Generate today's date in output

Does Oxygen or DITA have a field or similar that can be inserted in the DITA code in order to show today's date in the output when a transform runs? I have code similar to the following in a content file, and want to auto-populate the date, based on the date when the transform runs: <p>Update Date: ...

Can I use links to external files in my KEYDEF ditamap

I have a project that uses variables for content such as product names. The variables are defined as KEYDEF elements in a single .ditamap file, and all are contained in a MAP element within the .ditamap file. When I insert a variable into one of my topic files, the list of available variables that I...

In my DITAVAL file, I want to add a statement that excludes all content with a specific attribute ("product"), and then add include statements to include content marked with specific values for that attribute. I tried using a wildcard in the "val" attribute, but it did not seem t...

SVN client: prevent closing app without checking in changes

We use SVN client with Oxygen for source control. Are there any SVN client options to ensure that the SVN client synchronizes and updates the local copy of the file automatically when you start Oxygen? Also, when closing Oxygen, can Oxygen be configured to prompt a user to check in uncommitted file ...

excluding content from transform question, product attribute

My Oxygen product includes content shared by 30 different products. I use "product" attributes to identify content that should appear only in transforms for specific products. In some cases, I put more than one product value in the attribute statement, when I want the content to appear in ...

If an html type of KEYDEF has more than one possible values, can you configure the href attribute to match the URL?

My Oxygen project has a .ditamap file that contains the reusable variables for my project. Each variable is defined as a KEYDEF value, and we use different KEYWORD values, with a condition applied, to supply the variable value for different outputs. For example: <keydef keys="productNameLong&qu...

Re: Auto-generate list of links to child topics

Thanks again Radu. I was hoping for a simpler solution, similar to the "Insert miniTOC proxy" feature in Flare. I did try your suggestion, and the default rellinks lists that appeared showed some content that I would like to hide (the page number, the shortdesc), and it also showed a link ...

Re: Auto-generate list of links to child topics

Is there something similar for PDF/print output? Thanks for the suggestion. Forgot one thing: I'd like to be able to show this list of links for some parent topics only, not all of them (so a setting that creates a list of links in all topics with child topics would not be a good option.)

Auto-generate list of links to child topics

Is there an Oxygen feature or DITA element that can be inserted in a topic so that output automatically shows a list of links to child topics (based on the nested topicref elements in the .ditamap file), regardless of which .ditamap file is used to generate the output?
