Opening Oxygen Project (*.xpr) via File > Open URL...

Post by shealy » Wed May 12, 2021 6:45 pm

Our DITA collections reside within our CMS assets manager. I'd like to open a project file (*.xpr) via Open URL... with SFTP. And I'd like to open the project file in the Project Manager. When I select the project file, the Open "*.xpr" dialog displays the list of available file types to associate the file -- in my case the *.xpr. Which file type do I select to open the project file in the Project Manager? Selecting "XML" opens the file in the general editing pane but not in the Project manager.

Thank you in advance.

Hi Sean,

I'm assuming you want to open a project in Oxygen in order to impose custom preferences for the end user.
All the possibilities to share settings with Oxygen are described here:

https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/ ... ities.html

The Oxygen Project view allows opening only projects from the local disk drive.
You will probably need to create an Oxygen plugin which imposes a custom set of settings in the application when the application starts, like this sample Oxygen plugin here:
https://github.com/oxygenxml/wsaccess-j ... se-options

Once you have a plugin you can bundle it as an add-on:
https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/ ... ddons.html

and have users install the add-on using Oxygen's main menu Help->"Install new add-ons" functionality.

Regards,
Radu
