Technological Changes

Editorial Improvements

The import/export of iETD-ExportStandard v04.00 Content Objects is now possible by using an SPSL. Furthermore, a schema is available for IPD data modules. During generation of data modules, also the publication structure can be considered. When importing Content Objects, the permitted Infocode for each manual part are checked now. For the generation of serial numbers, it is now possible to choose number ranges. Additionally, the generator now fills gaps and does no longer take only the highest serial number. There are also further improvements and processes in the variant management and work packages as well as reports for illustrations.

HTML and PDF Publication

For the generation of PDF and HTML publications, the permitted StyleSets of the HICO X-Publisher® can be directly managed in the HICO iLS.Suite® and in the TechPub-Project and can be assigned in the package as well, as in publication processes. Additionally, the homepages for the HICO X-Browser® can be managed for each variant and there are new options available for the export. It is now also possible to use the StyleSets for the preview of Content Objects. The applicability can now also be defined in the publication and then used in the HICO X-Browser®.
