I posted this to the Arbortext support forum, but I thought I'd try here, too.I really like the content reference. It allows me to easily add conrefs, xrefs, etc. to my files.But, the actual value of the paths makes it hard for my team, because we use multiple operating systems, all with different file structures.Is there a way to use relative paths instead? Let me describe what I need before you answer with "Yes, use the ditapath setting".Here's the source tree:....\xmlsource\help\accounts about_accounts.xml editing_accounts.xml .......\xmlsource\help\opportunities about_opps.xml editing_opps.xml ...when I edit about_accounts.xml, I'd like to conref a p element from about_opps.xml.Without setting ditapath in Arbortext, the result is something like this (on Windows)
which will fail completely when someone with a different operating system or file structure opens it.
If I set ditapath, say to xmlsource, I get
which makes everything work in Arbortext, as long as everyone has their ditapath set up okay.
Sadly, though, it means I have to modify all of those attributes before running the DITA OT on the files because that's not a valid path anywhere outside of Arbortext.
What I want is
I know I can dig into the DITA application to try to figure this out on my own, but I was wondering if there is another solution or if someone else has already tackled this issue.
