Warn that a File Being Moved/Renamed Will Not Be Refactored

1. Although I have Master Files enabled, I recently cut and pasted a graphic in the Project pane to a different folder, and Oxygen didn't update links to the graphic. It appears that the graphic in question was not part of any DITA map hierarchy, although it was used by some orphan topics. In a case...

Re: Refactoring > Move Resource for Multiple Files

We had success with Radu's suggestion. One of my colleagues created a plugin that uses XSLT to output files containing all the topics and images used in the DITA map hierarchy. Then we are able to cut and paste these into the filter in the Project pane and move the files easily. Thanks again for you...

Re: Refactoring > Move Resource for Multiple Files

Thanks Sorin and Radu, I'm going to try out your suggestions tomorrow. I'll post again when I've had a chance to experiment. Also, I appreciate your adding my vote to the new feature request for refactoring multiple files.

Refactoring > Move Resource for Multiple Files

Hi, We're using Oxygen Author with Sourcetree. We have about 10,000 topics that are in incorrect folders, and we want to move them to different folders without breaking links. Is there any safe way to do this except by selecting each topic one by one in the Project pane and doing Refactoring > Move ...

Re: Split a Table in Two

Thanks Radu! The new code works very well. The only quirk that I see is for table cells that are vertically merged. If I split a table in a way that bisects a vertically merged cell, then afterwards the topic validation shows the errors "A cell is spanning on more rows than available in its parent e...

Re: Split a Table in Two

Thanks, Radu! I got the split table action installed. One side effect: After I split the table, the following syntax error appears for the new one: Element with duplicate ID "table_r4f_4k3_sgb" found in the same topic context. Also, as you mentioned, it would be nice if the action would duplicate th...

Re: Split a Table in Two

Thanks, Radu. Since you ask, I think it would be nice if the header gets duplicated for the new table. That would save me having to copy and paste the header to the new table.

Re: Improve Spellcheck for Multiple Files

Hi Radu,
I tried "Open Map in editor with resolved topics", and while it is useful for learning new words, it doesn't seem to let me correct any actual misspellings in that mode. So my original feature request would still be an improvement. Thanks.

Split a Table in Two

It would be really great if you could right-click in a row in a table and choose "Split Table." The table would be split into two tables, with the division occurring before the current row. A lot of authoring tools provide a feature like this. Thanks.

Improve Spellcheck for Multiple Files

I've been launching "Check Spelling in Files" from the DITA Map Manager. It's a useful feature, but one thing about it is frustrating. The list of misspelled words is frozen in time, and you have to open the affected topics one at a time. This means that if there is a particular word that is flagged...

Re: Do Content Fusion Tasks Expire?

Sorry, I just found the answer to my question. I found one of the review tasks that I could finalize, and after that, a "Show finalized review tasks" prompt appeared at the end of My Tasks. Clicking this successfully showed the task that I had finalized.

It is possible that I am just confused, but I just want to check whether old review tasks ever expire? Or do they always stay around until you explicitly delete...
