Re: Webhelp Responsive - Changing Search HTML

I found the code that I want to edit in this file: ...com.oxygenxml.webhelp.responsive\xsl\template\commonComponentsExpander.xsl However, I do not see this file on the list of possible extens...

Webhelp Responsive - Changing Search HTML

I'd like to edit some of the HTML for the Search bar in the Webhelp Responsive output. For example, the search bar has a tooltip that says "Please fill out this field." https://i.imgur.com/NI4FhLd.jpg However, I searched all through the plugins and could not find this text anywhere. Can anyone point...

Are there any tutorials on using DITA with Chemistry?

I tried to use Chemistry to transform a very simple DITA task into a PDF, with a very simple CSS. Not only did none of the images appear, but the steps all merged together into a single line, with no step numbers. It's super easy to generate this PDF as I want it, but from within Oxygen. I'd like to...

Re: WebHelp keyword highlighting

Use the CODEPH element. This highlights the text as you point out, within the current line of regular text.

If you want to offset a larger block with the same highlighting, use CODEBLOCK.

Exporting a set of all files referenced in a ditamap

I have a ditamap with many children topic files that are controlled by profiling attributes. In some cases, entire files are excluded; such that when I look at the map in the maps manager, those files are 'grayed out' because the current profiling attribute that I have selected excludes them. So, wh...

Re: Delete all the comments in one go in oXygen Author

In text mode, you could use a regular expression to do a find/replace, like this:

Check the "Regular expression" box in the bottom right. Then search for:"

<!--.*-->

and replace with nothing.

Advice on translations

I author all my content in English. For my translations, I use a translation agency that can handle DITA files. The process is pretty simple - I send them the ditamap and dita files, and they send me new files with all the content translated. Then I open the new ditamap and run my transformations. M...

Responsive footer not at bottom of page

Oxygen 20.0, webhelp responsive tiles.

When I'm looking at the page full screen on a large monitor, the footer is not at the bottom of the page; this results in some extra white space at the bottom.
