Moved a topic? Copy-pasted an entire folder? Changed an ID? These operations break xrefs. Find and fix them in just a few clicks.
Want to start using keyrefs? In just a few moments, modify xrefs so that their href attributes are replaced by keyrefs that you define.
Easily get information about the health of your documentation - count of xrefs to each destination, number of destinations, which keys are in use, etc.
Select a DITAMAP and scan your documentation and find all xrefs.
Work with Destinations:
Instead of working with individual xref elements one by one, modify destination URLs and simultaneously update all xrefs that point to those URLs.
Find xrefs that reference a particular destination URL and redirect them all to a URL you define.
DITA Xref Manager will inform you of which destination URLs do not exist. Fix xrefs to those destinations by redirecting them to a new URL.
Define keys in a keymap and DITA Xref Manager can assign them to all your xrefs in a few clicks.
Update all keyrefs to a new key your define.
Count Inbound Xrefs:
DITA Xref Manager provides a count of inbound xrefs to each destination URL. Easily see which topics and files are most referenced in your documentation.
Take Control of Your DITA-XML
When technical writers don't have a CMS it's impractical to move topics and reorganize content because these actions break links. Manually fixing these links is time consuming and error prone. This make it difficult to take advantage of all the features of DITA, such as topic-level authoring, content reuse and keyrefs.
With DITA Xref Manager, these problems are solved. Take control of your documentation and free your writers to reap all the benefits of DITA-XML.
Avoid High Costs
Small documentation teams and independant contractors often understand the benefits of a DITA-XML and Content Management Systems. However, many cannot take advantage of these technologies because of high cost.
DITA Xref Manager provides the link management features of a CMS at a price point that small teams can afford.
Improve Your Documentation
Link management is a major drain on productivity and the quality of documentation. The overhead imposed by link management without a CMS has ripple effects and causes lower quality documentation, frustrated writers, and lost productivity.
Your writers will be free from unnecessary productivity drains and create higher quality documentation with DITA Xref Manager.
