XMetaL Tag View Does Not Display Some Bookmap ElementsJanuary 12, 2010 at 1:30 amParticipants 5Replies 6Last Activity 12 years, 5 months ago
In XMetaL Enterprise 5.5, the tag view and map views don't display some elements (like
). Is there any way to easily enable them?
Thanks as always,

The Map Editor view doesn't display any metadata elements, however when I switch to the XML View for a bookmap I can insert and see
elements. This is using XMetaL Author Enterprise 5.5 Service Pack 1. Are you using a specialized bookmap, or have you made any changes to your configuration files?pmasal January 12, 2010 at 2:21 pm

Thank you, Su-Laine. I tried the same thing with the tag view, but can't see
, which is in the XML source for the bookmap (standard DITA 1.1 bookmap, no specialization).
I have attached a picture of my tag view, XML source view in Wordpad, and my XMetaL version information. Think I need SP1?

Hmm, that stylesheet looks really old. Can you download the latest stylesheets from here, install them, and see if that solves the problem? :

Hi, with all due respect, I don't see how these new stylesheets are going to help with bookmap. Thbre are 2 new css files in the package:
But for XMetaL Author 5.5 bookmap_bookmap.css in C:Program FilesXMetaL 5.5AuthorDITAXACsbookmap, only the following are called out:
Am I missing something in the updated stylesheet package? Should I update the specialized bookmap css to call the css files included in the package? Thanks!!

You're right, of course – the CSS files I attached before aren't the ones being used for bookmaps. Doh!
The most likely cause of this issue that one of your CSS files has the following statement:
The bookmap-specific stylesheets I'm attaching to this post should solve the problem. These are the stylesheets that are installed with XMetaL 6.0.
To use them:
1) Back up your C:Program FilesXMetaL 6.0AuthorDITAXACs folder
2) Unzip the attached file and drop its contents into C:Program FilesXMetaL 6.0AuthorDITAXACs .
If these don't solve the problem, we can take a closer look at your stylesheet files.

I'm now well on my way toward a well-customized bookmap CSS, thanks your help. The culprit was actually:
/* topicmeta */
display: none; }
Since al the bookmap metadata is within
, the CSS was hitting the map/topicmeta class condition and therefore not displaying the metadata.
Once I changed it to a block display, I can now format the metadata elements as desired.
