Re: Oxygen XML Web Author with Git using Bitbucket

Hi Gabriel,
I mistyped my login credentials for Bitbucket but don't know how to get back the popup that allows me to type in my login credentials again.
Also, our Bitbucket is running on a private server so do I not need to type in the server URL somewhere?
Thanks,
Ann

Oxygen XML Web Author with Git using Bitbucket

Hi,
I have an instance of our DITA source stored in Git accessible from an internal server hosting Bitbucket.
Can I use one of the Web Author plugins to connect to our Bitbucket server and access DITA content there?
Thanks in advance,
Ann

Re: Moving from Oxygen XML Author to Web Author

Hi Gabriel, Thanks very much for your detailed reply. When you say At the end, when SMEs have finished their work, you could merge the branches yourself. I don't understand how the SME can update the content directly in an SVN branch without a checkout/working copy of the files? I am guessing that w...

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?

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.
