Reply to: Using DITA properties tablesMarch 23, 2011 at 9:50 pm
I am having a similar problem with Properties. Inside my environment – working with XMetaL and a CMS, I am unable to access the code view from the editor. This seemingly makes it impossible to modify the properties table.
The way that the properties table works is that it is supposed to look for
For example, the first
| Property A | Value 1 | Desc 1 |
| | Value 2 | Desc 2 |
Inserting a properties table using XMetaL automatically inserts a three-column table with headings. I cannot delete the propval column in XMetaL.
My target properties table features only labels (types) and descriptions – there are no values. There are obviously other less semantically accurate markup I can use but I want to use the appropriate and valid DITA content. As stated above, I cannot access the code to manually fix the properties table in the source due to limitations in my environment.
Can you please help me find a workaround!
