Hi Yves,

According to the DITA specs the topic ID only needs to be unique in the context of the topic file. Indeed some of our users may define and regard topic IDs as unique in the entire DITA Map context, maybe use it for example as some kind of resource ID. Thing is that we cannot generate the topic ID automatically exactly as the user would want it. So we do not know exactly how to approach this problem. Do you usually set your topic IDs manually? What pattern do you use? Do you use for example the file name? Or do you use an unique generated ID?

Radu

Hi group

I really like the Duplicate feature in oXygenXML Author/Editor 18.1,
which I use to duplicate a topic in a DITA map and add the topicref to
the DITA map in one go. But... I see that the duplicated topic has the
same ID, which may present problems when the topic is referenced. So,
the author has to remember to remove the duplicate ID and generate a new
unique ID on the duplicated topic. Or is there a way to get a unique ID
on the duplicated topic automatically?

Thanks
