Are there any tutorials on using DITA with Chemistry?

Post by mdslup » Tue May 07, 2019 3:20 am

I tried to use Chemistry to transform a very simple DITA task into a PDF, with a very simple CSS. Not only did none of the images appear, but the steps all merged together into a single line, with no step numbers.

It's super easy to generate this PDF as I want it, but from within Oxygen. I'd like to do it using only the command line; but since Chemistry seems to be a more generic XML->PDF converter, I would really like to read about using DITA with it, specifically. But I can't find anything DITA-specific in the documentation.

Am I missing something?
