Re: Changing which topics get rendered as tiles

Hi Alin, Sorry, my request is a bit confusing. Instead of trying to render topics from different folder levels as tiles, I reorganised my maps and topics so that the ones I want to render as tiles are children of the root map. I then created 2 different transformation scenarios for each client with ...

Editor auto-selects topic in Maps Manager

Hi,
Before Oxygen Author 18.1 I remember that if I opened a topic in Author view, oXygen Author would select and highlight this topic in the DITA Maps Manager view. This doesn't seem to be happening for me any more.
Can I turn back on this feature?
Thanks,

Hi,
I want to render our Pdf transforms using 2 columns of text instead of the standard 1.
I have read about the

How is this achieved now?

Re: webhelp topic tranformed into html file with '-1' appended

Hi Radu,
My interim fix is to change my <reltable> entries to <related-link> entries. This seems to stop the extra html file being generated and so allows me to implement working cross-references.
I look forward to hearing how you get on with it. Good luck.
