I think one of the acceptable solutions is that after the Copy XPath action, the current XPath could be copied to the XPath Builder panel and, at the same time, displayed in the status bar, thus overriding the original content (which is mostly the file name--I think, this is unnecessary since it is ...

XPath at the cursor position in the XML Editor perspective

Hi, Is there any way to see the XPath of the element where the text cursor is placed? Maybe the status bar is a good place for it? I know I can copy and paste the current XPath but this is only a workaround. I have searched the Oxygen documentation for XPath but have not found anything on this matte...

Well, I understand the error message. My question is what XML processor should I use to validate XIncludes with xpointer="xpointer()" scheme. That is, what XML processor (if any) supports this scheme if Xerces doesn't? My question is a reference to Bob Stayton's book, exactly to the section on proce...

Hi, I have a DocBook DTD 4.4 article with XIncludes and I cannot validate it.

IMO, it does look better. Bear in mind that spelling suggestions should be placed on top only if the on-the-fly spelling is enabled. This is my guess, but based on my experience with a variety of word processors.

Thanks,

I would also suggest a small improvement to the existing functionality. When on-the-fly spell checker is enabled, and thus misspelled words are underlined, I would love if the context menu invoked on a misspelled word listed suggested words on top of it. Right now, spell checker is well hidden on se...

Thanks George.
I know I would be able to write such a script but the problem is that I cannot set up the tool chain. I do not know if it is a problem with XML catalogs or path configuration or something else. Error messages from the transformers are not very usable, unfortunately.

Well, for me, better support means not only following the formal rules but also adding some intelligence. In other words, not only syntax matters, semantics is as much important. So, since every DocBook user knows that, for example, olink may require targetptr , and the value of targetptr is always ...

This is cool! Thanks.
I just want to understand it well. Does your explanation mean that if I use <OLINK> tag and define TARGETPTR, I will see a window with the list of IDs? I hope this window will open up wherever the attribute value is an ID.

Tks,

Hi all, I guess this can be useful for those who use Oxygen to author in DocBook XML. Some DocBook tags require specifying an ID to cross-reference to a part of a document. Oxygen does not support IDs, that is, the editor does not give hints on the IDs defined across the source files within the proj...

Just a hint for developers who's going to implement (if so) this feature. This visualization should support inclusions via entities and XInclude. Styling the XML with CSS in a web browser doesn't resolve entities nor XIncludes.

George,

I can imagine such a situation. And I admit that naming could be less misleading :) However, you didn't answer my question. How do I work around the intentional behavior of header/footer. Is there any way, other than the XSL postprocessing, to include headers as I intended?

smaug, as a workaround, one can use <xml-stylesheet> and browse the source docbook file in a web browser.

Well, I don't think so. A web browser fails on resolving entities, at least Firefox/Win. MSIE doesn't even give any output.

It should be sufficient if the highlighted phrase was positioned 3-4 lines before the bottom of the screen and it wasn't covered by the Find/Replace dialog box.

I addition, it would be nice if the dialog box was semi-transparent.
