Reply to: Invoking auto-id generation from a macro?April 15, 2013 at 10:28 pm
Our CMS's functionality for creating conrefs is a bit cumbersome, so I created a macro that will let you copy/paste content as a conref, rather than a plain copy/paste. It also lets you create conref ranges if you copy a set of elements.
Is there anything about your CMS's conref markup that would make it DITA-invalid? I am curious to see what this cumbersome conref markup looks like.
Btw, the XMetaL Connector SDK is the only supported means by which our DITA feature can be setup to inter-operate with any CMS. The latest DITA 1.2 keyref features along with the MapEditor and our integrated DITA Open Toolkit are all coded to delegate reference resolution, locking, and fetching to the XMetaL Connector.
