In addition, in Tags On view (and specifically not Normal view) you can place the insertion point between the opening <table> tag and the grid-rendered portion of the table to access that element's attributes, or between the grid and the closing </table> tag. My previous post works for both Normal and Tags On view.

Yes, you can set the value for this attribute. Currently, if you wish to set this attribute value (or other attributes that are not exposed in the Table Properties dialog) you can do the following:

1) Place the insertion point anywhere in the table.
2) Open the Attribute Inspector.
3) Drill up to the "table" element using the dropdown list at the top of the Attribute Inspector. The current values for that attribute will be listed.
4) Click on the @rowheader attribute value's listbox and select one of the enumerated values listed (it will list all the values defined by the current DTD). If you are authoring to the DITA 1.3 DTD then the value "headers" will be available. If the DTD is for an older version of DITA (1.1 or 1.2) then that value will not be available. If you are working with a specialized DITA DTD then any values you have defined should be available.

Note: This Attribute Inspector feature can be used to access the attributes on any ancestor element relative to the current selection.

DITA 1.3 table/@rowheaders attribute is expanded to have the value "headers". If we specify @rowheaders="headers", the relevant column will be treated as the header.

3.12.4 Complex-table attribute group - @rowheader

Indicates that entries of a column described using the <colspec> element are functionally row headers (for cases with more than one column of row headers). Applies when @rowheader is used on the <colspec> element.

Does newest XMetaL 12.0 support this capability?

XMetal 12
Installer#: 12.0.0120

I looked through the forums and didn't see any info about my question. I would like to know if there is a way to enable a Print button for the webhelp TOC (next to the Contents, Index, Search buttons). We can print a single topic, but I would like to be able to print a topic and its sub-topics similar to what Eclipse help allows. If this is possible, is there documentation that explains how to do this?

This topic has been moved to General XMetaL Discussion.

Hi Developers,

I am working on Xmetal 11 version. I am not able to see <alt> tag inside <image> tag in tags on mod. How to enable this tag in tags on mod?

If you really want to hide borders on a table, and the table is HTML, and you have set the value for @border to 0 (so that the borders are currently being displayed as a dotted line), in newer versions of the software you can select View > Hide Table Grid. The option Show Table Grid will render them again. View settings don't alter markup in any way.

This feature was designed like a sort of preview to answer the question "I wonder what my borderless table might look like after my document has been transformed to a format where tables aren't visible". Of course some assumptions need to be made here but it can give you some rough idea. I wouldn't recommend trying to author this way though.

Microsoft does not allow embedding of a 32-bit DLL inside a 64-bit process. If you wish to embed an ActiveX control inside an XFT in the 64-bit version of XMetaL Author Essential (or Enterprise) you will need to obtain a 64-bit version of the control.

Unfortunately, there are a number of popular ActiveX controls that Microsoft has not ported to the 64-bit version of Windows (their MSCAL control is one of these). You may wish to contact them about this so they hear from more end users.

In the meantime you will either need to obtain a 64-bit ActiveX control to embed inside the XFT or run the 32-bit version of XMetaL Author Essential (which will run just fine on 64-bit versions of Windows as Windows will then run it under its "WOW64" system).
