How to render transformation parameter in PDF publication

Hi, I have a custom plugin for transforming my DITA project in Oxygen Author out to PDF. I would like to pass the value of a custom parameter that I have added to the transformation scenario to my plugin and render it from front-matter.xsl. I have tried all day but cannot figure out the declaring of...

Re: Reusing topics that have keyrefs

Hi Radu, I guess the complexity is in that (in my main project) I am reusing topics across maps where the keyrefs in the topics are resolved based on the keyscopes of the parent map. This is making it difficult to pull out small subsets of a map and reuse it in a different project to publish a PDF f...

Re: Reusing topics that have keyrefs

Sorry again for confusion. So mapWithKeydefs.ditamap is m_wf_iproperty.ditamap and it is a child of the root map i.e. the map that I am publishing. It resides in a folder path outside of the folder where the published map resides...but that's the whole point of reuse I thought. I have set fix.extern...

Thanks for that. I have deleted and installed the updated plugin.
One other thing I still am not sure of: what am I being logged in to when I enter my username and password? Out Bitbucket is running on an internal server not on the cloud...so will this work?

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?
