Re: Hiding a valid attribute from Attributes View

Thanks Radu! The ability to override is certainly a good one, and we wouldn't want to lose that ability. But in the meantime, it would be nice to mention at https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/21.1/ug-editor/topics/configuring-content-completion-proposals.html?hl=cc_config.xml#configuring-content...

Re: Hiding a valid attribute from Attributes View

Are cc_config.xml files incremental? I've extended the DITA framework. In my <framework>/resources/ directory, I created the following cc_config.xml file to hide some DITA attributes: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <?xml-model href="http://www.oxygenxml.com/ns/ccfilter/config/ccConfigSchemaF...

Re: updating bookmap with nest subtopic structure in a topic file

Thanks Radu! It has been working well in practice. When a user has made changes to a topic's subtopic structure, they (1) run the tool from the menu item, (2) click into the DITA Maps Manager, which reloads the changed map file, then (3) click back into the editing window, which expands the map to t...

Re: updating bookmap with nest subtopic structure in a topic file

Hi Radu, This is great information and Java is surely the right way to do this. Unfortunately I don't know any Java beyond "hello world" and so such a solution is not workable in my timeframe (which is tomorrow-ish!). For now, I have written a perl script that takes one or more topic filenames as in...

One further thought - I would not suggest spending development effort to provide a terminal/prompt interface; a simple command dialog box that shows its output in the same way as transformations would be completely sufficient!

Although nobody expects the plugin to replace a full-featured Git client, there is definitely value in supporting some additional basic operations such as branch creation/deletion. You guys have done a great job with the plugin even as-is!
