How to embed a PDF file into a topics

Mon Nov 19, 2018 3:25 pm

Hi,

We have a use case to import a pdf file as graphics into TPS and embed that pdf with a link into DITA Topics.
When we see the preview of this topic, it should display the link and upon clicking the link, the pdf file should open up.
any help to have this use case working is appreciated.

Thanks,

Hi Gopinath,

If you have the DITA topic opened in Oxygen in the Author visual editing mode, in the main "DITA" menu there should be a "Link" submenu allowing you to add a file reference, so you could add for example a link to that second PDF file.

Hi Radu,

I am using Oxygen XML author version-17.1 integrated with Tech Pub Studio - 2.7 and I don't see any sub menu as link under DITA menu.
I am seeing a related link tag in DITA Topics and if I href a PDF using link tag underneath it, I don't get to open the embedded PDF.
Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Hi Gopinath,

As you are using Oxygen embedded in a larger solution (which modifies its default behavior) maybe you could ask the makers of the "Tech Pub Studio" how such a link should be added.
