[Author] Strict casing mode for external links

Hello Everyone,

it would be nice to have an option for strict evaluating of references (mainly images) which wouldn't be displayed in the WYSIWYG mode until their paths match exactly.

If documents are prepared on Windows, casing issues are not detected. When the final HTML output is published on linux server, images with incorrect casing are missing there.

Hi Jan,

I perfectly understand the situation.
Indeed the Windows OS is case insensitive so Oxygen might display images (and resolve references to other files) even if the resources have case-sensitivity problems which may break the same behavior on Mac or Linux. We are a Java application and we use the standard Java libraries to obtain content for those references, content which is obtained on Windows despite of the capitalization problems.
We already have an issue logger to perform extra checks for such references when editing in the Author page.

If you are editing DITA for example when the DITA Map is opened in the DITA Maps Manager view you can use the "Validate and check for completeness" action to check for such problems.
