How to hide/show content in Oxygen Author

Post by julturner » Fri Oct 15, 2021 2:51 am

Hello - Need to hide (exclude) a an entire chapter for a version 2.0. The chapter that I need to hide existed in a previous version 1.0.

Also need to show (include) a chapter from version 2.0 that was excluded from a previous version 1.0 of the book. Can something help guide me in the direction to compete these actions. Thanks!

Hi,

What XML vocabulary are you using? Are you publishing it using Oxygen's bundled publishing processes or some custom in-house process?

Hi Radu,
'
Thank you for your reply. Am using ditaval xls and cvs files to edit the values in the cells with exclude and include, I use exclude as a cell value to hide the chapter in the book file and then include to show the chapter. Then, I publish the book files to Jenkins. If there is another process to hide/show, I will do it. Thank you sir.

Hi,

You probably need to apply a profiling attribute with a certain value on the topicref in the DITA Map:
https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/ ... butes.html
and then define an exclude filter in the ditaval file for that profiling attribute:
https://www.oxygenxml.com/dita/1.3/spec ... ments.html
When you use the DITA OT to publish from Jenkins use the "args.filter" parameter to refer to the DITAVAL file:
https://www.dita-ot.org/dev/parameters/ ... rgs.filter
