Select the current topic in a map

You can find out where an open topic is located in a map.

  • The map must be open in the DITA Map view.

This feature is useful when you have a topic open in your editor, and you want to find where (or if) it's located in a map.

To select the current topic in a map:

  • In the DITA toolbar, click the Select in map button. Select in Map button

    The topic must be open and selected (have focus) in the editor area for this to work.

  • From most views (Search Result, Dependencies, Documents, etc.), right-click the document and select Select in map.
The topic is highlighted in the map. If necessary, the appropriate map sub-trees expand to show the location.
