Re: customizing for related topic output

We had the same requirement to list all related links under the same heading. Here's what I did to create the desired results. I only spent a couple of hours on this, so I'm sure this method can be improved upon by more expert XSLT developers. I created a new rel-links.myplugin.xsl file with the fol...

Hi Radu, I'll send the screenshots to the email provided. Yes, we do use a CCMS (SDL to be exact). As a side note, their plugin only works with x32-bit version of 17, not 18.x x64-bit version of Oxygen. Even after uninstalling their plugin, and uninstalling and reinstalling 18.1 x64-bit of Oxygen Ed...

I am trying to figure out why my conref preview is not working. I have the option set to Display Referenced Content (Preferences/Editor/Edit Modes/Author), but all I'm seeing is the source tag, not the preview of the referenced content (conref). Is there something that I'm missing? Other writers in ...

Re: title numbering in PDF2 moving from Oxygen Author 13 to Oxygen Author 14.1

Thanks for this plugin! This is exactly what I was looking for. I tested on OT 1.8.4 and it works fine. It's also faster. Using the code above, it took 22 minutes to create a 800-page Admin Guide. With the plugin, it took only 7 minutes!

We have a situation where our IDs are created by the author.

Duplicate IDs are a problem if we are creati...
