I think I got my reply to my earlier post concerning how to produce output using oxygen 9.1 I tried the startcmd at DITAOT prompt and then used the ant -f build_demo.xml; what has now put me with a question is; I am not getting an htmlhelp output which previously I did when I tried it from the example. I had a ditamap named myditamap with 2 topics and a concept xml file. Using the xmetal I can get the chm output for my project; but using ant -f build_demo.xml I am unable and infact when I select the pdf there is an error opening the pdf file.
Hello, I have created a dita file with ditamap, 2 topics and a concept. All is validated well; point is how shall I see the output; I use xmetal 5 open the ditamap there add files and then build output into chm. Thanks In Advance
Hi, I'm a tech writer and a new user of DITA. My company says that I can use any DITA editor I want and will buy me an editor (such as Arbortext) if I so choose. I'm wondering whether any of you have any feedback to give me on Arbortext vs. other DITA editors for creating on-line or Web-based Help. I know that JoAnn Hackos promotes the use of Arbortext, given that her new book on DITA uses Arbortext examples throughout.
I am trying to install the FrameMaker Adapter for the DITA Open Toolkit. I was able to add the DITA-OT application to the structapps.fm file in my FrameMaker 8 installation, but when I tried to generate sample FrameMaker output (step 1.3 in the framemake_adapter_adapter0.8\FrameMaker_adapter\ReadMe.html file) with this command:
ant -Dargs.input="samples\sequence.ditamap" dita2fmxml
I received this message:
What is a good short description for a task?
Some of the short descriptions indicated as "good" in the class assignments simply restated information that was in the short description of the related concept. The task's short description may have been written differently and in the imperative, but it was redundant information.
