Re: Transformation to PDF fails (using Chemistry)

It looks like transformation is trying to start a chemistry executable that is not embedded into the oXygen installation. This may have two causes: 1. A corrupt chemistry installation is specified in the PATH environment variable. 2. An incorrect chemistry installation is specified in the transforma...

Re: How to show <othermeta> in PDF transformations?

To forward all the othermeta elements information to the document properties, you can use a this CSS rule:

Code: Select all

*[class ~= "topic/othermeta"][name] {
 		-oxy-pdf-meta-custom: attr(name) attr(content);
}

Re: Revision tables for bookmaps?

Here are some hints: 1. Use a simple table (simpletable DITA element), or a hierarchy of simple tables. As far as I know, these are not counted in the list of tables. 2. The front matter sections are rendered by default without headers. You can read more about the structure and customization possibi...

Hello Duncan, I run a test and I changed the XPath expression.

As a workaround, you can use the oxy_xpath function run over the original map file. You can extract any element value or attribute from the original proc...

I think one workaround is to use the padding-top property instead of margin. The margin is discarded, but the padding not.

The margins of the first block in the page are now discarded. This is desirable, to make the sections titles align properly in the page when they are at the beginning. The front-page-title is not the first block in the page, there are others with no content. Those are losing the top margin. A workar...

Hello Bridget,

The first one sets newlines after each visual line, while Acrobat is putting the entire codeblock on a single line, that is bad also.
