Author Topic: Unable to generate PDF output (renderx) for composite topics (<dita..>)  (Read 1821 times)
« on: April 18, 2012, 08:28:06 AM »

If my ditamap contains composite topics (tagged <dita>), I cannot  generate output to PDF (that is, to deliverable type: XMetal Enhanced PDF via RenderX XEP).

However, I can publish ditamaps that contain simple topics (the standard dita topics reference, task, concept) to any Deliverable type, including XMetal Enhanced PDF via RenderX XEP.

Also, I can publish ditamaps that composite topics to Deliverable type: multiple HTML files.

How can I get output to PDF to work with compiste topics?

I assume that this is an issue of command parameters.
In the 'Configure Output Options' > Advanced I  have:

cmd_always_open_log  =  no
ANT_OPTS  =  "-Xmx256m"
cmd_fs_sandboxing  =  no
cmd_cms_sandboxing  =  yes
cmd_dita_before_14_compatible  =  yes
cmd_dita_ot_per_user_version  =  1
_rem_cmd_synchro_mode  =  2

I have experimented with both:
cmd_dita_before_14_compatible  =  no
cmd_dita_before_14_compatible  =  yes

With cmd_dita_before_14_compatible  =  no the publication fails.
With cmd_dita_before_14_compatible  =  yes the poublication nomunally succeeds but the topic contents are not included in the output pdf.

In Edit deliverable type for PDF output, I have:
cmd_xmreviewer  =  1

Any suggestions gratefully received!
