- Review the presentation at http://www.ditausers.org/tutorials/basics/Priestley_Authoring/
- Read section 3.1 of the DITA 1.1 architectural specification:
- Read the description of <shortdesc> in the DITA 1.1 language specification:
I am trying to use a .ditaval file to display conditional text:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<prop att="audience" val="user" action="exclude"/>
In my topic, I have an element defined thusly:
<p audience="user">Only display this text for admin users</p>
When I do my build in debug mode, it seems to resolve ant.input.valfile correctly:
Question: Why does one file overwrite the other file even if they were saved as different file names?
I use Epic Editor to create dita files. Here's a problem I came across recently:
I created a concept topic and saved it as c_admin.dita. While the file is still open, I saved it as another file c_client.dita and changed the concept id. I created a totally new content for c_client.dita and saved and closed it when I finished, believing I had two concept files now.
Is there any DITA editor that offers global spell check (spell check of all topics in a dita map) or is global spell check only available through a CMS? Same question for global search and replace.
Although XMetaL docs do a good job explaining the application, and how it works with DITA, they don't provide any "how to" information for new users that need to alter the appearance of their docs to accommodate their company's standards. So, I got a preliminary doc from XMetaL, "Customizing DITA PDF Output."
Although I had to burn a Support credit, the doc has been very helpful. However, I cannot get the output I expect. I decided to start with a simple change to the title page, according to the
instructions in their doc.
