onlytopic.in.map & abbreviated-form

Post by Tristan » Wed Jun 22, 2016 3:44 pm

Hi,

Some questions about onlytopic.in.map.

1. Link remains
If the parameter is set, the xref linking to the topic (which is not attached to a ditamap), is still transformed to a link in the output. So when clicked it leads to nowhere ('blank page'). Is there a method/plan to convert these 'pointless' links to plain text during transformation when onlytopic.in.map is set to true?

2. Not applicable for abbreviated-form?
glossentries which are linked via an abbreviated-form (and not linked in a map) are still transformed to the output. Also glossentries referred to by abbreviated-form on that 'linked' glossentry are pulled in, again leading in an entire cascade of topics which I would expect to be concluded.
Shouldn't this parameter also prevent topics linked to via abbreviated-form?

3. @conref only?
The description of onlytpoic.in.map states it excludes topics linked via 'conref' but I have the impression that description is not correct/complete as also xref target topics which are linked to via href are not transformed (which is behavior I expect).

Hi Tristan,

I'm afraid I do not know much about how this parameter is implemented in the DITA Open Toolkit engine.
Maybe you should ask around on the Yahoo Groups DITA Users List.
