CSS association in Project file

Hi,

I want to associate a bunch of files with a CSS file, without modifying the XML files themselves or modifying the framework that they use (they all use the same DITA framework, but we don't want to change the framework yet).

As far as I remember, it is possible to set common preferences for a set of files if they belong to a project defined by an .xpr file.

Can you please point me to information on how to associate a CSS file with the project? I already browsed the following Help pages, but could not find what I need there:

https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/19.1/ug-editor/glossary/project-options.html
https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/19.1/ug-editor/topics/sharing-projects.html#sharing-projects__project-file-section
https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/19.1/ug-editor/topics/rendering-xml-author-mode.html

Best regards,

Yves

Hi Yves,

If you have an Oxygen project you can save various settings at project level but the only way to associate CSSs used for editing in the Author visual editing mode with a bunch of XML files without modifying them is by a document type/framework association. You do not need to edit the existing "DITA" framework, you can instead extend it and save the extension framework in a folder inside the project.
Something like this:
