Re: DITA to PDF error, no PDF output now despite build success

Just an update: I tried just reinstalling XEP, so far so good. Now everything works. There was an existing installation and a new one over it so maybe things got mixed, I just wiped it off and started over. Thx-

Re: DITA to PDF error, no PDF output now despite build success

Hi Radu, Okay thanks, I had discounted that because I have another map that seems to display the same error but produces a PDF every time-- I'll have to double check if it actually gives that error each time. It's very spotty/buggy in any case, the map I'm having trouble producing sometimes does, so...

Re: DITA to PDF error, no PDF output now despite build success

This seems to be acting up again, or at least the PDF build process is, it builds successfully about every third time but only after finishing several times with a successful build code but no PDF opening in the Web Browser, and if I open the PDF directly it gives a "can't be opened, damaged" messag...

Re: product name not being picked up in Infocenter

Okay thanks, that's useful to know. I'll crank up Eclipse and see if I can make some sense of it from that direction. My plugin also works as a help plugin if I deploy it using Eclipse, but the browser title still isn't there.

Re: product name not being picked up in Infocenter

Thanks, no problem, it's been a mystery for a while now. One other question, since Oxygen has an "Eclipse Plugin" transformation built in, do you have any examples of that working as an Infocenter help plugin where the title is picked up in the browser tab, I mean even using Eclipse to deploy it? Si...

Re: product name not being picked up in Infocenter

Hi, Just to be clear first: The product plugin is being displayed in the Infocenter. Everything works except the product name being picked up to go in the browser tab. The product plugin is the directory located here: /spf-doc/output/war_out/com.pfm.rfp/WEB-INF/plugins/com.pfm.rfp The rest of the .j...

Re: DITA to PDF error, no PDF output now despite build success

I just realized that I could open the xml file in Oxygen and validate it (I was using a text editor to look at it) and finally found the problem, after chasing around. This line at the top was commented out: <!--<config xmlns="http://www.renderx.com/XEP/config">--> which led to that <font> tag being...

Re: DITA to PDF error, no PDF output now despite build success

Just getting back to this, thanks for the reply. I didn't edit that xep.xml file, no, the only one on my computer has this at line 169: <fonts xmlns="http://www.renderx.com/XEP/config" xml:base="fonts/" default-family="Helvetica"> Does that look right? The URL leads to a "file not found" page at XEP...

Re: DITA to PDF error, no PDF output now despite build success

Thanks for the reply, I changed to using the Apache FO for now and it's actually doing everything I need, so because of time constraints will just stay with that. I'll look into using Render X again if I have time later. If I have a pause I'll assemble a small sample doc and reproduce the error usin...

DITA to PDF error, no PDF output now despite build success

I installed XEP RenderX and it was working for PDF output from DITA, but every other time or so no PDF would appear. Now, I'm getting no PDF output each time, even though "Build Successful" appears and "exit code 0". I see this message, can anyone tell me what it is or at least where to investigate?...

Re: product name not being picked up in Infocenter

Hi Sorin, The title of your help plugin should come from the label attribute of the toc element (the root element) from your file xxx_xxx_.xml which holds the Table of Contents and which you declared by: Right, that makes sense. My root xxx.xxx.xml doc does have what I want in the label tag, but it'...

product name not being picked up in Infocenter

I've got two Eclipse Infocenters that I generated using Oxygen, generating Eclipse Help from a bookmap ditamap, and I've got them deployed in .war archives in an Apache Tomcat server as standalone help. I've made all of the branding and customizations I needed, but one thing that remains is the titl...

Re: How to customize Oxygen Eclipse help

Hi Sorin, I found an answer to how to modify the .jar files, here: http://www.xmldocs.info/?page_id=6787 I had been using several types of commands to expand and re-compress the .jar files, but what I didn't know about were these commands to extract and update them with new or modified files, withou...

How to customize Oxygen Eclipse help

Hello, I've been following instructions from Eclipse.org and Dita.xml.org as well as other places, trying to customize the Eclipse Infocenter that I've created using Oxygen. The Eclipse Help plugin works fine if I just put it in the Eclipse/plugins directory and then start it using a command line, b...
