thanks for the quick reply.
So the problem using the current "Search References" functionality is that it takes some time to deliver all references to the element, right?
I have to say that I didn't know about this feature (if you mean the feature described here
), I was using an external search tool. My bad, I'll have a deeper look into it.
In my opinion the problem isn't the search itself, but being remembered that content is pulled elsewhere.
Are you also using conref push functionality in your project?
No, not at the moment. I try to keep stuff simple to let as may co-worker participate in our documentation as possible. The support in the editor for pull confrefs via the "Reuse content from a document"-button is extremely good, easy to understand and very simple to use. Therefore pulled conrefs was my first choice. But I'll have a look at pushed conrefs, as well.
Also, would you expect this view to update in real time, for example each time new links between different components are added in topics and maps?
Me in personal: no, I wouldn't. But I do a lot of XML stuff and programming and therefore I know how hard this can get with detecting loops in the tree and all that jazz. I don't have a problem with a button "scan project" that will refresh everything. But I that's only my
opinion, maybe other users do want to have this feature.
If you have a clear idea about how this view would behave, please give us more details about what you expect.
Well, I haven rethought this very deeply and I would highly suggest asking more user than just me about a new feature
I like the idea of the view listing all "ingoing" and "outgoing" connections. This will help a lot during editing, especially if you can easily follow these links to check the destination files.
I think one thing is worth mentioning: Let's say you man have opened a ditamap and editing a topic. This topic can get pulled by a dita-file, which is not part of the current ditamap.
Thank you very much for all your effort, best regards,
