    Reply To: Configure output to use standard DITA OT Fo instead of XM-FO

    Thank you very much! This helps me a lot. I now get pdf's made with the original stylesheets. But, of course, in the past we have made customizations for our stylesheets.

    When I put these files in C:Usersi.weyersAppDataRoamingSoftQuadXMetaL SharedDITA_OTdemofoCustomization (including the catalog), I do not get the same output as when for instance I use the DITA OT 1.5.4. in Oxygen. XMetaL 7 also uses DITA OT 1.5.4 So I find this very strange… Is there something I am overlooking? Could this have something to do with the different FO processors?

    I also have another question/issue:
    We have different stylesheets for different customers. Before, we used a special parameter to direct to the customization files (for instance in Oxygen we used customization.dir = ${frameworksDir}/dita/DITA-OT/demo/fo/Customization_TDS) and created multiple transformations , each with a parameter directing to the specific customizations.
    I tried adding a similar parameter in the output type, using the direct path: customization.dir = C:Usersi.weyersAppDataRoamingSoftQuadXMetaL SharedDITA_OTdemofoCustomization_TDS, but in this case the customization directory is not used. and the standard DITA OT stylesheets are used. Do you know how to achieve this system in XMetaL?

    Once more thank you for your help,
    Inge

    I want to achieve the same thing for my publication. I have a map with only first-level topics and I do not want a title page or page breaks, but have all content follow one another continueously. I followed the link to the tech.groups.yahoo.com post. But I cannot see any of the previews of the template and thus are unable to replicate your solution. Can you help me perhaps with a copy of your template?

    Hello Wim and Tonys,

    I am running into the same problem and was wondering whether you have found a solution for this? I am certain that there are no bad links in my document (I tested on a ditamap with only one very simple concept topic). Another reason why I do not think a bad link is causing this problem, is because I get the same error when composing the provided DITAmap template in TopLeaf GUI.

    I hope you have found a solution and can help me on my way…

    Thank you!

    I tried deleting and rebuilding the DITA-OT folder in SoftQuad. The previously mentioned error no longer occurs, but now I get the following error:

    =====
    TopLeaf.compose:
    [echo] Setting C:UsersIB61B~1.WEYAppDataRoamingSoftQuadXMETAL~1DITA_OTtempTest.ditamap using style DITAmap
    [topleaf.compose] Composition log saved to p:inge weyerstopleafpdf_outTL_log.txt

    BUILD FAILED

    C:UsersIB61B~1.WEYAppDataRoamingSoftQuadXMETAL~1DITA_OTbuild_topleaf.xml:133: Composition failed: error 1039
    =====

    I searched for the composition log and found there the same error as I also get when trying to compose the DITAMAP template in the TopLeaf GUI:

    The following file (and location) do not exist in my system: “C:WorkJustSysSamplesgendata.ditamap”, nor can I find the gendata.ditamap file on any other location in my computer.

    I suppose that this is a environment parameter that should not be fixed? Can anyone help me to get further with this issue?

    Thank you!

    Thank you Derek. I am afraid that your solution will not work for me. I might have rephrase my situation. I do not have a specialized DITA DTD, but an independent DTD that is DITA-like. I am not able to use the select Specialized DITA DTD option. Is there another workaround?

    I hoped there might be a file with the coding for that dialog box that I might be able to copy and use in my own files?
