Outputclass attribute in web responsive tiles

I'm creating an internal documentation portal - it's a ditamap full of topicrefs. Each topicref points to a location where documentation is held. Some documentation is available to everyone, while some is only available internally; I'd like to color code the tiles appropriately. I thought I could ad...

PDF output: image runs off page

I have some DITA that essentially looks like this: <step> <cmd>Do the step: </cmd> <choices> <choice> If variant, do this: <ol> <li> Step 1 <p><img/></p> </li> <li> Step 2 <p><img/></p> </li> <li> Step 3 <p><img/></p> </li> <li> Step 4 <p><img/></p> </li> </ol> </choice> <choice> If other variant do...

Re: Referencing previous steps

Thanks. First, here is a screenshot (Using XML Editor 20.0, build 2018032903): https://i.imgur.com/17oKOIg.png The code is below. You can see that the "refer to" in step 5 should point to step 1, but it points to step 2. When testing this, I first set up this file, and linked to the step. Oxygen cor...

Referencing previous steps

I'm working on a task topic. In some of the later steps, I want to refer back to earlier steps. I don't want to hardcode the step number....if I add a new step, those numbers will become wrong. So I'm setting up an xref to get the step number, like so: <cmd>Reconnect any connectors that were disconn...

Re: Can't find the "Parent topic" localization string

Yes, perfect.

Radu, thank you so much. I will thoroughly read that "Localizing the Interface" page, I'm not sure how I missed that.

Thanks.

Can't find the "Parent topic" localization string

Using Oxygen 20 webhelp classic. When I have a series of nested topics, the web output creates a link called "Parent topic". This is great. When I change the args.default.language parameter to something with a localization file, for example, fr-fr, this link displays in French as "Sujet parent". Aga...

Re: webhelp.head.script converts &,<,> to &amp; &lt; &gt;

I figured this out! The way to do this is to have the file that is pointed to by webhelp.head.script include a file reference, not the script inline. Then add the file that contains the script to the resources folder using webhelp.custom.resources. It's the second bullet point in item #1 of this lin...

Re: webhelp.head.script converts &,<,> to &amp; &lt; &gt;

Sorry I think I was unclear. The main problem is that I need oxygen to *not* do this character conversion. Is there a parameter for that?

I'm using Oxygen 20 classic webhelp. My company has asked me to add a widget from a customer support company called ZenDesk. The widget is javascript and looks like this (I've replaced my company name with "company"): <!-- Start of company Zendesk Widget script --> <script>/*<![CDATA[*/window.zEmbed...

Re: Webhelp Common - menucascade produces <abbr>

OK, that works. Thanks.

Still, for my own knowledge, can you tell me where in the DITA Plugin this code is generated:

Code: Select all

<abbr title="and then"> > </abbr>
What if I wanted to change the TITLE attribute of the ABBR element?

Webhelp Common - menucascade produces <abbr>

Using Oxygen 19.1 with the WebHelp Classic transformation. Using MENUCASCADE with a series of UICONTROLs, such as: <step> <cmd>Select <menucascade> <uicontrol>Menu1</uicontrol> <uicontrol>Menu2</uicontrol> </menucascade>.</cmd> </step> produces HTML with an ABBR element: <span class="ph cmd"> Select...

Different HTML output for topics with/without STEPXMP

Try this - create 2 tasks in a map, each with the same number of steps. In one task, add a step example (stepxmp) to one of the steps. Then, run the DITA Map XHTML tranformation. Look at the generated HTML files: * In the HTML file WITH the stepxmp, notice that the generated step includes a stepexpa...

I have a very simple map set up: Master Map -- Submap 1 ----Topic 1 ----Topic 2 --Submap 2 ----Topic 3 ----Topic 4 When I generate the webhelp, the resulting index file ignores the fact that there are 2 submaps. Instead, it looks like this: index.html Topic 1 (link) Topic 2 (link) Topic 3 (link) Top...
