Re: Possibilities to directly edit dita topics in a ditamap

Hi Julien, I figured out why this is not working for me. Now I see that maps and topics have their own sets of transformations: image.png and that the map and topic versions of the PDF Chemistry transformation have a different "Type" value: image.png Our "Synopsys PDF" transformation (we have severa...

Re: Possibilities to directly edit dita topics in a ditamap

Perhaps related, we also have writers asking for the ability to create PDF Chemistry PDFs for single topic files or selected branches of a map, but with the variables in the current book being resolved. (I agree that this is not an easy problem to solve!!) Maybe both of these could be built on some ...

Thanks for the extra details, I added them on the opened issue.

Hi Radu, Thanks! A "Paste as reference" would be great.

Re: Enhance DITA Maps Manager to copy/paste topicrefs using keyref instead of href

I should clarify my last statement - this is analogous to the behavior in Oxygen where you drag a topic in the DITA Maps Manager from book A into a topic editing window with a context of book B , and Oxygen automatically creates a keyref-based xref to the topic if the topic's book A key is reachable...

We are looking at using "warehouse books" in our flow.
