Re: Problems with definition lists and tables in PDF output

Hi,
I am using the 2.x tranformation. It turns out that a predecessor had set the colwidth on those tables. The solution is to let the transformation set the colwidth. Hopefully this is good information for other users on the forum.
Thank you for the reponse,
Victoria

Problems with definition lists and tables in PDF output

I'm on oXygen 18.1. The transformation scenario dialog says the type is PDF2 and the processor is Apache FOP.
Definition lists and tables are so indented in the PDF output as to be impossible to follow.
Is there anything to be done?
And no, I'm not aware of any custom plug-ins.
Thank you,
Victoria

Re: PDF Table of Contents formatting

Hmmm, I'm using oXygen 18.1. It says the Transformation Scenario is PDF, Type DITA OT, and the processor is Apache FOP.
(I inherited all the transformations for our docs and there isn't a history.)

PDF Table of Contents formatting

Hi, The point size for the *titles* of new topics that I've added to the DITA map appears larger than the subsequent topics. The "Chapter n" size is consistent, it's just the title string itself. I've tried to mock up the problem, below. Is this formatting controlled in the CSS? Contents Chapter 1: ...

Possible to add Home or Top navigation?

Hello,
I know how to add Next topic/Previous topic and Parent topic to the WebHelp. Is there a way to add a Home or Top link or breadcrumb?
Thank you,

Re: How to display Document > References menu for a topic?

Update:
I tried deleting the file from the disk and generating the webhelp. I got an error that the file is missing so clearly it is used somewhere.
I also tried this using Oxygen 18.1
Thanks,

Re: How to display Document > References menu for a topic?

I am using Oxgen 17.1 in Author mode. We are not integrated with a CMS. Right-clicking the title displays a context menu with Close and Add to Project options. I cannot find the topic file in the main ditamap or in a reltable. It is only listed in the project, but somehow it is generated in the webh...

How to display Document > References menu for a topic?

I have a topic that I don't see in a ditamap but I do see in the generated webhelp. I have the topic open in Author mode in Oxygen 17.1 and the title has the blue highlight, but I can't get the References menu to be active (not dimmed). How do I activate it?

I am suddenly receiving the following when I run a tranformation. It worked fine an hour earlier. I don't see any console output or logs to check. Any suggestions?
