Re: Fatal error returned on DITA Map PDF - based on HTML5 & CSS

Hi there,
I will send you whatever you need. Is the transformation log saved out as a file, or is it just found in the build console? If there is a log file, where do I find this?
Thanks.

Re: Problems with Inkscape SVG images

Hi Radu, Here is my quick synopsis what I think is going on: The problem is the OxygenXML SVG rendering engine does not like FlowRoot . If I convert the SVG to version 1.2 the images show up in Oxygen but fails on publishing. So: SVG engine hates "FlowROOT" in SVG 1.1 files. SVG engine likes "FlowRO...

Section numbering not showing up - numbering parameter set to "deep"

I'm testing out publishing a DITA Bookmap to PDF using DITA Map PDF - based on HTML5 & CSS transformation scenario. I set the args.css.param.numbering to "deep", which should assign numbering to chapter and section headings. The individual chapters (or topics) are assigned numbering, even if nested ...

Re: Problems with Inkscape SVG images

Late to this thread, but discovering this myself. Is this an issue with InkScape or OxygenXML? I'm so done with using SVGs unless they are literally simple line drawings.

Transformation scenario - where to put the custom template file

I am looking through the Creating a Publishing Template to Customize WebHelp and PDF Output using CSS training video. This all makes sense for the most part and is easy to follow. The one question I have is where to store the newly created custom template files? The video suggests naming the templat...

Thank you. Yes, I posted twice after not seeing my published post. I didn't see that it was first in a moderator queue. No worries!
And thank you for the reply. Getting closer to giving it a try!

Re: Prefixes for DITA elements

Hello Radu,

Thanks for the reply. This is good information. Could you briefly speak to these publishing plugins. Do they come as part of Oxygen XML Author? Can one still do create a WebHelp output out-of-the-box, or does one need the Oxygen XML WebHelp 21.1 plugin for this?

Prefixes for DITA elements

Hello, Hope to be a future Oxygen user, but until then I am here to ask some questions. Currently I am using Adobe FrameMaker to author and publish DITA content. The authoring is not too bad, but the publishing is arduously painful. FrameMakers uses a combination of EDD files and FrameMaker template...
