Files returned by pdf-css-html5 transformation

Post by ahiggins »

Hi,
I use Oxygen XML v24 and DITA-OT3.7 with the pdf-css-html5 transformation to generate output. An html and xml file are returned in the output folder. Should a pdf file be returned too? Are there other files missing from my output folder?
And if not, does that mean I have to manually convert either the html or xml file?
Thanks,
Amy

Also, maybe I should note that I copied the com.oxygenxml.pdf.css plugin from the Oxygen XML Editor 24\frameworks\dita\DITA-OT3.x\plugins\com.oxygenxml.pdf.css directory to a separate DITA-OT\plugins directory I've installed on my computer.

Hello,
Just copying one of the plugins in not enough, there are many other dependencies (like the PDF processor library files). We recommend downloading the Oxygen Publishing Engine (which comprises of a DITA-OT plus the entire set of Oxygen publishing plugins) and using it as an external DITA-OT from Oxygen: https://www.oxygenxml.com/publishing_en ... nload.html

To make Oxygen XML Editor/Author use it for the DITA transformations you should set its installation folder into from Options/Preferences/DITA/Custom.

Running the publishing engine from Oxygen XML Editor/Author requires no additional license key. If you plan using it from an external process, like an integration server, you will need to purchase a license from: https://www.oxygenxml.com/publishing_en ... icing.html

Many regards,
Dan
