Re: Webhelp Responsive: prevent caching

Can you explain why that is the intended behavior? It seems like it should not be. I do not want any situation where my users go to a webpage that I have updated, but that shows the old version. Am I missing something here?

Webhelp Responsive: prevent caching

Using Dita with Webhelp responsive. I update my documentation frequently. Many times, I make a change and the users do not see it until after they refresh the page. Is there anything I can do about this? I noticed this article: https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/22.0/ug-editor/topics/disable-cac...

Cross reference automatically uses title

Whenever I set up a cross-reference, I type the title of the topic that I want the reference to point to. Then, I turn that text into a link. However, I'd like to be able to set up a link such that the title is automatically generated in the link in the topic that I am creating the link in. This way...

Can I set a default attribute of an element?

I want all my images to be on a newline. However, Oxygen defaults to showing images inline. So for every single image, I have to set the "Placement" attribute to be "break". Is there a way to change this default?

Multiple levels of menu in Webhelp Responsive Tree

In the Webhelp responsive tree layout, the arrows that you use to expand the menus on the main page only go 1-level deep.

Is it possible for these arrows to have a deeper level, so that I can expand multiple levels of menu while I'm still on the main page?

Microsoft Word transform: Notes, Warnings, Cautions still in English

Sometimes I need to transform a ditamap and its topics into a Microsoft Word document.

How do I change the language of the warnings, cautions, and notes? I tried setting the default language to, for example, fr-fr, but this text is still in English.

Webhelp Responsive 21.1 - Word boundaries not respected on window resize

Using Oxygen 21.1, build 2019061404.

See this gif: https://i.imgur.com/cNrSOUC.gifv

Note how, as I resize the window, the word "charging" is broken up in the middle of the word. This wasn't happening in Oxygen 20, I don't think.

I switched to Oxygen 21.1. Using webhelp responsive, my output now always includes a set of .gz files:

..\out\webhelp-responsive\oxygen-webhelp\lib\kuromoji\dict

I am not authoring in Japanese; why are these files being generated? They take up a lot of space.
