An assembly may contain several
structure elements. A
structure element may specify several output formats (
When this is the case, you'll want to specify which structure you want to convert by the means of the "" menu items and also which output format you target. Menu item " " displays a dialog box allowing this specification.
The value of the
xml:id attribute of the
structure element to be converted. By default, it's the first
structure found in the
One of the output formats specified in the
structure selected using the above "Structure ID" combobox. By default, it's the value of the
defaultformat attribute of the
structure if any, the “implicit format” otherwise.
The “implicit format” matches
filterout elements without any
Multiple output formats separated by "
;" may be specified. For example, "
web;print" means output format is "
web" OR "
Check the assembly being edited and all its referenced topics for all kinds of errors, including cross-reference errors and missing image resources.
This check task which can be lengthy is run in background. While this task is running, a non-modal dialog box displays all the errors and warnings found in the assembly being edited and all the topics referenced by this assembly. If no errors or warnings are found, the dialog box is automatically closed. Otherwise it stays opened allowing you to review each error or warning. After you are done, you'll have to close the dialog box by clickingif you want to be able to re-run .
If your assembly requires conditional processing (that is, profiling), then command may report false errors. These false errors are caused by the fact that the conditional processing step has not been applied to the realized document prior to the check step.
Example: two of the chapters referenced by assembly
xml:id="install". First chapter has also
os="windows". Second chapter has also
If you don't apply any conditional processing to the realized
book.xml, you'll get a duplicate ID warning caused by
On the other hand, if you apply, say, profile
os="window" to the realized
book.xml, you'll not have this duplicate ID error. Why that? Because by applying profile
os="windows", second chapter (having
os="mac") is excluded from the realized document prior to checking it.
When such last used profile is detected by, this command displays a dialog box letting the user review this profile before performing the check.
outputformat attribute set on
filterout elements allows to specify “classes” of output formats rather than actual output formats (PDF, DOCX, EPUB, etc).
