Re: Diff tool error when reusing content from a Git submodule

jhanna, thanks for finding and reporting this. We will be looking into using Git submodules soon.

How are submodules working for you? What do you use them for?

Re: Link viewer that lists incoming and outgoing links

Hi Sorin, I've been meaning to add all of our maps to the Master Files list so that Search References can find references across all books. However, we have ~20,000 DITA topic files and ~100 bookmap files. What's the upper limit for the Master Files feature to track before there is a performance imp...

Moving a set of topics *and* their references to a new location

Hi all, In our DITA books, we use the following directory structure: book.ditamap book/chapter1/graphics/pic_featureA_a.png book/chapter1/graphics/pic_featureA_b.png book/chapter1/graphics/pic_featureB_a.png book/chapter1/graphics/pic_featureB_b.png book/chapter1/topic_featureA_1.dita book/chapter1/...

Re: Git plugin - "Cannot pull with rebase because of the following uncommitted files"

Hi Sorin, The troublesome thing about this for us is that they don't have to be the same file . The remote commit can be any file, even a file that isn't being worked on locally; it's not just conflict cases. I am surprised the rebase behavior is this limiting, to be honest. I'll try building the pl...

Git plugin - "Cannot pull with rebase because of the following uncommitted files"

Hi all, We are heavily using the Git plugin in Oxygen. We've switched from merge pulls to rebase pulls to simplify the commit graph, and it's been great! The only wrinkle is that sometimes users get an error: Cannot pull with rebase because of the following uncommitted files: But it didn't always ha...

Hi Adrian,

We have about 50 writers sharing the same project file. Each of us works on a different set of books, and that varies over time depending on the workload assigned to us. The favorites for one writer wouldn't apply to the others.

Re: Have a way to pin/unpin favorite files in the Project view

Another thought - it should be possible to add a directory to the favorites list, so that when expanded, it shows the contents as they currently are (i.e. the favorite directory contents are the filesystem contents, not further static favorite entries).

It would be useful to have a "favorites" folder in the Project view where I could add/remove files I tend to work on most often, with the information being stored in my user-level Oxygen settings:
