context for fo:external-graphic URL?

I'm encountering an odd problem. I have an XSLT file that is producing XSL-FO output for transformation to PDF. In my transformation scenario, both XML input file and the XSLT file are in the same directory. I have an FO statement <fo:external-graphic src="url('{graphic/@url}')"/> When I ran this on...

Transformation output to URL

Am I correct that it is not possible (even in oXygen 10) to define a custom transformation scenario that sends an output file to a URL?

If so, I would request this as a feature, for example to be able to define a WebDAV or sftp URL for the output file.

Re: Regex replacement crash

The problem with the expression 'x*$' is that it can also match empty strings located at the end of line because of the x*(0-n occurrences of x). When using 'Replace all' there will always be a match of length 0 at the end of any line so the replace will get stuck in an infinite loop. If x+(1-n occ...

Regex replacement crash

oXygen 9.1, standalone under Mac OS X

If I try the following regular expression find-and-replace:

Text to find: x*$
Replace with: [empty]

oXygen hangs and has to be killed externally. 'x' above can be any character.

Except from this initial template thing what are other options you would need to specify that are not in the oXygen preferences? That is the major one.

Warn on loading single-line XML documents

Currently, if one has "Line wrap" set in oXygen preferences, it is horribly slow to load a large XML file without line breaks (and horribly slow to work with the file once it is loaded). With line wrap off, the loading is much faster, and it is possible then to use format-and-indent if desired to fo...
