CSS/HTML PDF - Removing front matter leaves artifacts

Oxygen 21.1 2019061404 I want to create PDFs that begin with the content immediately, without any front matter. So I want to remove the cover page and Table of Contents. Starting with a duplicate of the PDF HTML5&CSS scenario. I use a publishing template to connect a blank CSS file to it. I generate...

Ctrl+Shift+V = Paste as text

Can you add a keyboard shortcut for "Paste Special > Paste as Text"? In other applications it's usually Ctrl+Shift+V.

Re: Making pictures in HTML clickable to open bigger pictures

Oh wow, I've been manually resizing the pictures all this time for nothing! This is going to save me a lot of time *and* improve functionality!

Thanks!

Making pictures in HTML clickable to open bigger pictures

Let's say I want all the pictures in my manual to be clickable links - clicking the link opens up a larger version of the picture. I know how to do this - I save 2 versions of the picture, show the small version in the topic, and make that small picture a link whose href is the bigger picture. Easy....

Re: Webhelp Responsive publishing template that includes first topic in main page?

steinbacherGE, I've been wanting to do this for a while and came up with a workaround. 1. Create a file called "Welcome.dita". Make it the first child topic in the map. 2. Use the webhelp.fragment.welcome to point to an HTML file (this parameter puts this HTML code into the head of the index.html fi...

To do this, I added a dummy file as the first topic in the map...mine was called "welcome" (but ...

When editing a topic file, I can insert an XREF to another topic file, and point to a specific ID in that topic file...so that when I generate the HTML, the link takes you directly to the anchor on the page.

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.

Oxygen 21.1 - Output always includes Kuromoji

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.

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.

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.
