No Valid Reference Available at Current Location

One of our writers gets the error message "There is no valid reference available at current location." whenever she right-clicks the first node in the DITA Maps Manager and chooses Append Child. The message happens even when different dita maps are currently loaded that are located in different fold...

Continuous Page Numbering

Hi, We're customizing the CSS for the table of contents for PDF output, and I notice that the page numbering is not working how we would like. We want the pages in the book to be numbered continuously from the title page to the end. So our page footers throughout the book use the following for the p...

Re: Headers/Footers for Backmatter, Not Frontmatter

Re: Headers/Footers for Backmatter, Not Frontmatter

Thanks Costin, for catching that typo. Unfortunately, even after I correct it, the styles that I specified are not getting applied to the amendments topic. Is there something else that I am missing?

Thanks!

Re: Headers/Footers for Backmatter, Not Frontmatter

Hi Dan, I've been trying to set up styles for an amendments topic in the backmatter, but something's not working. In the ditamap, the topic appears as follows: <backmatter> <amendments href="../topics/document_revision_history_imm_registry_cfg_5_9_3_1c89200f966e2c6fc115aefceb396acc.dita" toc="no"/> ...

When I tried to create an 8.5" x 11" image, the resulting SVG was actually too big to fit on the page whe...

Short Descriptions in Reviews

Hi,
Is there a way to suppress the Short Description element so it doesn't appear to reviewers in Content Fusion? My concern is that they will assume that the text prints out as part of the topic.

Thanks!

I can set the @scope to "col" for cells that need to be treated as headers, but are not in the first row of the table. For example, <row> ...

Or rather, that's how it looks in Author mode, but in Text mode you can see that the whole table is actually coded as four columns, and in most of the rows, the right thre...

Re: Searching for Text in Reused Components in Current Dita Map Hierarchy

Thanks Radu. I can see that including the reusable content as a "resource-only" entry in the ditamap would help. Where it gets a little complicated is if you have a number of components that are reused in topics in one book, and maybe some of those components are also reused in topics in other books...
