Reply to: How to set page preview for XMetal as HTML output

By default XMetaL Author Enterprise is set up to produce HTML output when you switch to Page Preview (aka: Browser Preview) and render it in that view. This setting is controlled on the “Preview” tab in the Configure Output Options dialog, accessible by selecting the “Configure Output” option on the Tools menu. Please refer to attached screen shot.

You may select only from “deliverable types” that produce either HTML or PDF as the output format. Internet Explorer is used to render the HTML output in this view and the Adobe Reader plug-in for Internet Explorer is used to render PDF.

Note: if you are not working with DITA documents then the solution will be very different because the DITA OT and our integration with it cannot be used in that case. Configuring this for other DTD and Schema types requires additional configuration.
