Not out of the box as we haven't had any requests for such a feature. It isn't on the feature request list either (for the same reason).

I think writing a script that would do this would be fairly straightforward using the APIs XMetaL Author (or XMAX) provides. Walking the document to get each element then turning that into a string and saving it all out to a text file sounds fairly easy to do. I'm sure there are bound to be a few gotchas you'd need to work out (do you need comments and PIs, or just elements and attributes, the entire document / a portion of it, leave out specific elements and values, etc...?)

We are going to make documentation for apps and responsive webdesign. Today we use XMETAL9 and SDL LiveContent Architect Publication Manager 11.3 with a pdf output.

I know that Oxygen can convert DITA to JSON. Can XMETAL do the same?

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?

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?
