Shortdesc and Chunked Topics

Here should go questions about transforming XML with XSLT and FOP.

Shortdesc and Chunked Topics

Post by dgallo » Mon Feb 15, 2016 7:35 pm

I have discovered that when a parent topic, that has "chunk=to content" specified, has no shortdesc, Oxygen automatically creates a shortdesc using all of the child topic's shortdesc. This is fine, but what if I only want Oxygen to use the first child topics shortdesc, instead of consolidating all of them into one. Is this possible?

Thanks,
Danielle

Hi,

I assumed you are talking about the DITA PDF output.

I was not able to reproduce your problem with oXygen 17.1 and the bundled DITA-OT 1.8. In my case, for a topic with "chunk=to content" and without shortdesc, it remains without any shortdesc in the PDF output.

Could you try with the default DITA Map PDF transformation scenario? Do you obtain the same problem?

I am sorry, I should have specified my output. I am referring to webhelp.

Thanks,

Hi,

I didn't manage to reproduce your problem for the Webhelp output.

Could you give us more details about your environment? What oXygen and DITA-OT versions are you using?

Also, it would be very helpful if you could send us a small DITA map sample including the referenced topics at support@oxygenxml.com. This will help us to reproduce the problem.
