Re: Generation of Table of contents and index page

Hi Dan, We have <indexterms> in our DITA (it's content converted from FrameMaker), but we don't want to generate the index or its TOC entry at this time. How do we suppress index generation in PDF Chemistry? At https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/21.1/ug-pdf-css/topics/dcpp_table_of_contents.html...

using external font files from Windows in PDF Chemistry

We use Microsoft Visio in a Windows 10 environment to create SVG figures. Thus, the SVG files contain references to the "Arial" and "Courier New" font families. When we use PDF Chemistry in a linux environment to publish our books, these fonts are not resolved and instead fall back to Times. Althoug...

How do I automatically run a post-processing utility on the PDF file?

I have a post-processing utility that we run on our published PDF files. However, it's cumbersome for our writers to run it manually each time they publish a PDF with PDF Chemistry. Is there a way to run an external utility automatically as a part of the PDF Chemistry transformation? I don't see an ...

I submitted an enhancement request for the Git plugin to provide a simple command-line interface to the Eclipse JGit module used internally. With this, we could (hopefully!) perform simple operations such as branch creation and branch merges from within the Oxygen environment.
