Re: Inserting an informalfigure in DocBook

Hi Radu, Ok, that's what I thought. Yes, I think this is a case where "Insert Graphic" should be improved since this would apply to anyone using DocBook and isn't something idiosyncratic in our use of DocBook. I can think of two ways to do this. The first is more generic and would free you from the ...

Re: Reload settings file

Hi Adrian, Thanks for that information. I can see how things are intended to work and can probably adapt my system to it since this use of the External Tools feature is not long-term. I serve as the tools developer for our group. Most of the writers don't want or need to think much about how Oxygen ...

Inserting an informalfigure in DocBook

Hi there, As far as I can tell, the Insert Graphic action doesn't allow you to insert an informalfigure and also doesn't allow you to insert a figure within a paragraph. There are times when you want to have a single paragraph with a figure in the middle: <para>Blah blah <figure>...</figure> more te...

Re: Can't add an xlink:href to a link in DocBook 5 in Oxygen 12

Hi Radu, I've discovered the problem: the xlink ns is there if you insert the link using the menu, but not if you use the content completion mechanism. What you have to do is add the link action to the content completion and element list and then filter the link element from all of those. Then it wo...

Re: Can't add an xlink:href to a link in DocBook 5 in Oxygen 12

Hi Radu,
I noticed on the rss feed that for Build ID 2011012011 it says "Now the XLink namespace is declared by default when inserting an image in a DocBook 5 document edited in Author mode." However when I upgraded tested it, the behavior is as it was before.

Thanks,
David

Re: Constraining attr value in DocBook rng schema customization

Never mind. I figured out that overrides have to be children of the <include> of the schema you're including and overriding. That makes perfect sense now that I get it...much better than the DTD way.
