Bookmaps are incorrectly numbered in PDF output, how can I debug this?

Hi, I am trying to create PDF output with topic numbers, and the PDF bookmarks are still incorrectly numbered if a bookmap contains parts. In this case, the chapters are assigned the number of the previous part: VII Part Heading VII Chapter Heading 1.1 Topic Heading ... VII Another Chapter Heading 2...

Re: DITA transformation to CHM fails because of strange path issues

Hi Radu, I noticed conversion problems for the first time a couple of months ago. Not with a CHM conversion, but with a PDF conversion that still worked fine a few days earlier. There were no intentional changes to the external DITA OT folder or to the Oxygen catalog at that time - I was only workin...

Re: DITA transformation to CHM fails because of strange path issues

For reasons I cannot understand, this problem seems to be caused by the DOCTYPE declaration. This DOCTYPE declaration causes a problem (though it is perfectly valid IMO): <!DOCTYPE concept PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DITA 1.1 Concept//EN" "http://docs.oasis-open.org/dita/v1.1/OS/dtd/concept...

I often use "Find/Replace in Files" with the scope "Current DITA map hierarchy". However, I am often not too happy with the results. We use conrefs from a file that is not added as a topicref to the DITA map. Unfortunately, oXygen never finds the search text in the conref file. I...

Re: Sort function for DITA maps

Hi Radu,
my idea was to select the parent topic, but it might actually be better (more flexible) to select the siblings.
I've prepared two sample maps (German and English version) and will now send them to support.
Thank you very much for your help

Re: Numbering plugin for PDF output

Hi,
I added one more condition to the xsl:choose:

<xsl:when test="self::*[contains(@class, ' bookmap/part ')]"/>
<!-- Do not add numbers for parts -->

Maybe other DITA users want numbered headings too.
