stepsection resets numbering for xref

Using Oxygen 22.1. In a task topic, I have a table at the top with step numbers. These step numbers are xrefs that link to steps with IDs in the same file. The xref just displays the step number, which is what I want. However, putting in a stepsection causes this numbering to reset. Is this a known ...

Exporting task to excel

I'd like to export a task to excel, with each step being one cell. Is this possible? The twist is: A lot of my steps are just an image (no text). And I want these to be outputted as well. I found the documentation about copying to excel from "Grid" mode but again, this doesn't help with images. Is t...

OK, I tried this again. It works when I duplicate the Webhelp Responsive scenario, but FAILS when I assign a publishing template to that. Can you try validating this?

Printing topics from webhelp responsive

When printing a topic from webhelp resonsive, the LH nav menu also prints. I remember that in the old webhelp classic, this was not the case. Is there a way to print *only* the topic? Additionally, I notice that, by default, the icons for notes (warning, caution, danger, etc) are classified as "back...

It would be great if I could set a specific output class on *any* element that would result in a turndown menu. For example, a step with a long set of substeps.

Display linked procedures in same window

I have a complete repair manual with hundreds of procedures. Many of these procedures link to each other.

When a procedure links to another, is there a way to display the linked procedure in the same window, perhaps *in place of* the link? Could a smaller frame open? Any ideas?

Add custom "turndown" menus wherever I want

Adding a "Section" element to a DITA file results in a "turndown" arrow being displayed in the HTML.

Is it possible to add this arrow to other sections as well? Could I add them wherever I want?

Thanks.
