DocBook labeling DE

Hi there,
I just installed XMLmind DocBook-Editor. Great tool, thank you.
My question: is it possible to have the DocBook identifiers such as 
book, chapter, article etc. displayed in different languages e.g. german 
inside the editor?

Thanks in advance
Dirk Moser

lost information

You have already answered this question, I know, but probably a couple of years ago and I’ve forgotten where to find the answer … it’s about font mapping, and how to resolve the discrepancies between What You See and What You Get :-} specifically, I just used the helpful symbols palette to insert a Unicode arrow into my text (not for a menu cascade, of course) and then had a message from Acrobat to say ‘Arial MT does not include this glyph’. Of course, this could also be Adobe messing things up the way Illustrator replaces Arial with Arial MT every time I open an .svg …

 

Thanks for the tip about indenting list items, by the way – exactly what I needed.

multi-level lists

Not expecting your usual speedy answer, of course, when submitting a question on Bastille Day :-} but if I ask the question while I’m thinking about it, then I won’t forget …

 

When I select a multi-level list and paste it in with Topic > Paste as > ul, the result is a single ul with all items at the same level. Is there an easy way to select two or three items and indent them as a second-level list? I thought I’d stumbled on it once, but can’t find it again.

Please do not bother sending us any further information. I managed to 
reproduce the problem by first installing XXE v6.7 on Windows 10 and 
then installing XXE v7, without first uninstalling XXE v6.7.

Installing XXE v7 over XXE v6.7 (e.g. using default location "C:\Program 
Files (x86)\XMLmind_XML_Editor") keeps old v6.7 files (e.g. "C:\Program 
Files (x86)\XMLmind_XML_Editor\addon\edit_source\edit_source.jar") in 
the v7 installation directory. Hence all the problems you had.

The cure is very simple:

1) Uninstall XXE v7. This will completely delete "C:\Program Files 
(x86)\XMLmind_XML_Editor", including the old v6.7 files.

2) Install XXE v7 again.

This bug is specific to Windows and to our setup.exe. We'll fix it for 
the next release of XXE. Meanwhile, we'll inform all our users that they 
have to first uninstall their old version of XXE before installing v7.

Re: XXE] Navigation pane

Dear Hussein,
I work with the Docbook implementation and have some troubleshooting manuals with some hundred snippets
in several chapters and sections.
For me also it was much easier to open a specific troubleshooting explanation from the navigation pane than
it is now.
So, here is a second vote for "bring it back".

Well, perhaps it seems like a minor issue ? but the map is a lot harder to scan! and, indeed, out of the box the
topic titles are displayed in a paler colour than the filenames. (worse on the laptop than in the
screenshot) Up till now, one of the (many) discreet strengths of XXE has been that the user can choose
whichever navigation option is more appropriate.



As for asking reviewers to change their way of working to suit an upgraded version of the software, that ? I'm
afraid ? is not going to happen! the certification labs, to give just one example, use the section
numbering to match our input to their checklists; also, there are repeated sequences of title A > title B >
title C, so there could be multiple topics with the same title. (terminal type A > operations >
troubleshooting; terminal type B > operations > troubleshooting; terminal type C > operations > troubleshooting)

In short, if it came to a vote I for one would be strongly in favour of retaining the Navigation pane option. It
delivers useful information which is not available elsewhere in the interface.

Feature wish: Limit Search/Replace to specific language/markup

I often wish to be able to limit a search to a search within a specific 
language or element. So, for instance, if I work on a document 
containing both Norwegian and English, I would like to be able to 
exclude elements that are tagged with xml:lang="en" or lang="en". Or, 
alternatively, that I can exclude <blockquote> elements.

Re: Wanted: Quick inspection of replaced text

The problem you have reported: "I can interrupt the search/replace 
action by selecting menu item "Edit|Undo" but not by pressing Ctrl-Z 
(Cmd-Z on the Mac)" is indeed a bug caused by the new implementation of 
the "Edit source" add-on in v7.

We'll of course fix this bug in the next version of XMLmind XML editor. 
Meanwhile uninstalling the the "Edit source" add-on fixes this issue.

Aside this bug fix, we are sorry to say that we do not plan to improve 
XMLmind XML Editor's search/replace facility in the near future. The 
reasons are: current facility not excellent, but deemed to work 
sufficiently well; other priorities such as fully supporting DITA 1.3.

Feature request: parameter for default .profiles file

Hello Hussein,

 

I would appreciate if it were possible for the user to select a default .profile file which would persist between XMLmind sessions. This parameter could be stored in the Preferences dialog and a “set as default” checkbox added to the “Conditional Processing Profiles” dialog.

 

My authors mostly access their topics either via the CCMS or from hotlinked PDFs which launch XMLmind and open their target topic from the CCMS; they very rarely go in from the ditamap, partly because the ditamap is often huge.

 

With the current XMLmind setup, an author going through a set of topic has to either re-select his profile every time he opens a topic, or else open the ditamap, load the ditamap into the Navigation Pane, and then select a .profile file….and do that every time they start an authoring session.

 

In my environment, authors tend to stay on projects for months at a time, so being able to simply select a .profile and stick with it would be very nice.

 

Cheers,

Jeff.

XMLmind XML Editor v6 and v7 behave *exactly* the same after you open 
error.xhtml:

1) The "red flag" is displayed at the bottom/left of the main window.

2) The "Validity" tool is not automatically displayed.

3) If you click on its tab to display it (this choice is persistent 
across editing sessions, that is, once displayed, XMLmind XML Editor 
will keep this tool displayed), it shows:

---
[1] element cannot contain element "ul" [cvc-complex-type]
[2] the sequence of child elements is incorrect [cvc-complex-type.2.4]
---

See attached screenshot.

4) XMLmind XML Editor v6 and v7 allow you to save any file if and only 
if you modify this file.  In the case of erroneous file error.xhtml, 
XMLmind XML Editor v6 and v7 allow you to save it whether these 
modifications fix the validity problem or not.

--> You may want to check "Automatically show Validity tool" 
(Options|Preferences, Tools|Validate section). This will not change 
XMLmind XML Editor behavior when opening an erroneous file but only when 
saving it. Please try this option, may be it will help. See 
http://www.xmlmind.com/xmleditor/_distrib/doc/help/toolsOptions.html#validateOptions

I'm sorry but we don't consider this to be incorrect. We never claimed 
that XMLmind XML Editor emulates the way a web browser styles (X)HTML, 
nor that XMLmind XML Editor implements the (X)HTML5 spec. For us, 
suffice for an itemized list to like an itemized list, that is, to be 
indented and have bullets.

If you are not satisfied with this, please fix the XHTML CSS stylesheet 
yourself. This can be done quickly and easily by using 
"Options|Customize Configuration|Customize CSS Stylesheet". See 
"Customize CSS Stylesheet" in 
http://www.xmlmind.com/xmleditor/_distrib/doc/help/customizeConfigurationMenu.html 
and "The 'Customize CSS Stylesheet' dialog box" in 
http://www.xmlmind.com/xmleditor/_distrib/doc/help/customizeStylesheetDialog.html

XXE7: background-color not showing in element:before

Hello.

In our custom CSS, a section1 element (a display:block) has the following

section1:before
{
    content: 
collapser(collapsed-icon,icon(collapsed-right),expanded-icon,icon(expanded-down)) 

     " "
     simple-counter(n,decimal)
     " "
     text-field(attribute,id,columns,10,font-size,small);

     font-weight: bold;
     font-size:large;
     background-color: #BFD0FF;
}

On XXE version 7.0.0, it comes out like this (where there is no 
background color at all in the generated content):

In XXE version 4.9.1 (and 5.3.0), it looks like this (where the 
background color is there for the entire generated content):

Is this due to a change in version 6 (or 7) on how background-color is 
handled in generated content?  I could not find anything in the 
documentation.

Thanks,

--Andy
