Re: Handling file/directory rename reference adjustment in large projects

Hi Radu, That is helpful, I had not tried that! Unfortunately this will help only in a small number of cases. Most of the time, the writers are restructuring topic/image files within their books (adding directory structure as subject areas get large and complicated), renaming directories within thei...

Finding over-width tables (and cleaning up transformation warnings?)

Hi all, Today I was asked how our writers can find and fix over-width tables in our PDFs. I do see an over-width table message in the transformation message summary (look for the "SEE HERE"): Description: [CH] Invalid property encountered on "fo:inline": box-sizing (See position 16:2623) Description...

Re: Handling file/directory rename reference adjustment in large projects

Hi Radu, Lately when I need to rename some files, I add just that map to Master Files, do the rename work, then remove the map from Master Files. There doesn't seem to be any preprocessing penalty for doing this - the rename operations immediately assess the context and correctly figure out the depe...

Re: apply-imports / next-match missing in org.dita-community.dita3html

This is actually something we've been wondering about for a long time. So far, we have been using DITA-OT with our own plugin, and we have been the only fish in the pond. Now we are migrating to oXygen and that's not the case anymore. We don't have calls to apply-imports or next-match in our own pl...

Re: Control "Current DITA Map Hierarchy" traverses into warehouse/peer maps

This particular scope: Include topics locally instantiated from resource-only maps ("search all content in MY book") would mean that only topics referenced with keyref in the main DITA Map should be searched, right?

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...
