How to quickly find the error image

Post by catherine » Tue Jul 30, 2019 10:19 am

Hi,
When I publish webhelp using Oxygen, there may be some error images, (such as missing image, or incorrect image path), I will get an error message like the following:

[DOTX008W] File 'file:/E:/docs/Images/admin/cdr_and_recordings_user_portal.png' cannot be loaded, and no navigation title is specified for the table of contents.

Because I have many images in my documents, I cannot remember where is the image being used?
How can I quickly find the error message in a specific topic file?

Hi Catherine,

You should validate your DITA Maps prior to publishing them.

More specific, open the DITA Map you are working with in the DITA Maps Manager view and invoke the "Validate and Check for Completeness" action on it (the action is available in the view's toolbar - look for an icon that depicts a file with a red check-mark on it).
This way, you will be presented in detail all errors and could better notice the files that triggers them.

Regards,
