Ignoring a copy-to file Error

I'm trying to get @copy-to to work. I've read the spec and the Oxygen Help topics, so I think I'm setting up the files correctly, but I still can't get this work (OT 1.8.5).

Code: Select all

 <map> ...
<topicref href="conTypesOfSoftwareUpdates.dita"
<linktext>Unique Software Title</linktext>
<topicref href="taskUploadSoftwareFirmwarePackage.dita"/>
<topicref href="refSoftwareAndFirmwareOverviewPage.dita"/>
... </map>
I'm trying to set it up so an xref from taskUploadSoftwareFirmwarePackage.dita points to conTypesOfSoftwareUpdates-2.dita.

With this setup, I get the following message in the output log:

Code: Select all

[filter] Processing C:\_working\input\projects\fscli_reference\conTypesOfSoftwareUpdates-2.dita
[filter] Ignoring a copy-to file fscli_reference/conTypesOfSoftwareUpdates-2.dita

And does the output work? Is a new HTML file created for the copy-to location?
If you can come up with a sample DITA project, please zip it and send it to "" along with more details.

As I was putting the sample files together and testing them, I got this feature to work! Go figure!

What I was doing wrong was xref'ing to the results file (conTypesOfSoftwareUpdates-2.html) instead of the new (copy-to) file (conTypesOfSoftwareUpdates-2.dita).
