Open an Eclipse Perspective

If you have never worked with the DITA CMS or if you have been working with another perspective within the Eclipse Workbench, you will need to open the DITA Perspective.

The DITA Perspective is only one of several offered by DITA CMS. But the DITA Perspective is the one that offers the basic functionality of creating and editing documents. Once you're familiar with the DITA Perspective, you may want to take advantage of other specialized perspectives such as Project Management and Report Design.

  1. Open Eclipse.
  2. Click Window > Open Perspective > Other... from the menu bar.
    The Open Perspective dialog appears.
  3. Select DITA.
  4. Click OK.
The DITA Perspective opens.
The first time you open DITA CMS in Eclipse you must enter your login information.
