Miscellaneous improvements to the DITA CMS

The DITA CMS 4.2 includes miscellaneous improvements.

  • Autorefresh in map view - Selecting a map from the history list now automatically opens the map in the DITA Map Editor.
  • Partial synchronization is now always enabled - Partial synchronization is now always enabled to improve the performance of the DITA CMS. As such, the synchronization page has been removed from the DITA CMS preferences. Options that were on the synchronization page were moved to other pages:
    • To clear information from the cache, select DITA CMS > General Behavior and click Clear Memory Cache.
    • To clear files from your hard drive, select DITA CMS > General Behavior and click Clear Workspace.
    • To synchronize the image thumbnails, select DITA CMS > General Behavior and click Synchronize Image Thumbnails.
  • Export search results - You can export search results and save them in a file outside the repository in three different formats:
    • Tab Separated Value (TSV).
    • Extensible Markup Language (XML).
    • Spreadsheet (XLS)
    These formats can be imported into other programs such as spreadsheet applications.
  • The Connection Information tooltip for the connection status icon in the toolbar now shows both the roles and groups to which the user belongs.
