Map size limitation on WebHelp output type?February 17, 2010 at 8:13 pmParticipants 0Replies 1Last Activity 12 years, 4 months ago
Using XMetaL Author Enterprise 6.0, I am attempting to generate WebHelp output for a DITA map that contains approximately 1200 topicrefs (grouped under 20 or so topicheads). Invariably, when I open the output file, the expected frameset appears, but instead of displaying the navigation and content as expected, it just displays an animated OSX-like “loading” graphic (as shown in the attached screen sample).
The output log contains no errors, but it does have a large number of warnings (that seem unrelated), all in the following format:
[xslt] file:/C:/DOCUME%7e1/W951EQ4/APPLIC%7e1/SoftQuad/XMetaL%7e1/DITA_OT/xsl/xslhtml/dita2htmlImpl.xsl:4754:18: Warning!
[xslt] generateScript: SETSCRIPT = no
Smaller maps work fine. I tested one that contains about 120 topicrefs with no problems.
In the instance of the larger map, the log ends with a line that reads:
The system cannot find the file specified.
This is not the case for the smaller map.
All of the individual HTML files appear to be generating as expected (I have not tested each one, for obvious reasons).
So, I suppose the question is: is there a known upper limit on how many topicrefs a map can contain for WebHelp output to work properly?Chris February 18, 2010 at 6:39 pm

We have not tested for the upper limit of map size for Webhelp. I would be interested to see where it's failing, so if you are able to please send me a .zip of the webhelp output folder to chris dot johnson at justsystems dot com.
That said, one of the goals of the Webhelp feature preview is to gather feedback from the XMetaL community. So speak up people, what's the (typical) size of the maps you are using in production?
