Format » Generate Mappings from XML...

TopLeaf can automatically generate a set of initial tag mappings for a publication by interpreting an XML document file. The mappings created provide a starting point from which a more complete mapping set can be developed. This menu option scans an XML document and creates an initial set of tag mappings from the tags declared within that document.

This option is only available when using the legacy Map Manager. See Import mappings in the Mapping Guide for information on the equivalent function in the Mapping Editor.

[Warning] Warning

If you generate a new set of tag mappings for a legacy TopLeaf publication all existing tag and custom markers mappings will be overwritten.

Format » Import Mappings from CSS...

TopLeaf provides a means of initializing the style for a publication by interpreting a CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) file. It is important to note that TopLeaf and CSS use different models for describing style, so it is not possible to do a full conversion. Instead, the mappings created represent a starting point from which more complete mappings can be developed.

This menu option imports a CSS Stylesheet to create an initial set of TopLeaf mappings. See “Importing a CSS stylesheet” for more information.

This option is only available when using the legacy Map Manager. See Import mappings in the Mapping Guide for information on the equivalent function in the Mapping Editor.

[Warning] Warning

If you create a new set of tag mappings for a legacy TopLeaf publication by importing a CSS stylesheet, all existing tag and custom markers mappings will be overwritten.

Format » DTD File

You can force TopLeaf to use a specific document type declaration by defining a primary DTD file. This menu option edits the primary DTD file using the “Other Files” editor defined in the preferences.

Format » Catalog File

Entities within a document type declaration can be resolved using the OASIS catalog mechanism. This menu option edits the partition catalog file using the “Other Files” editor defined in the preferences.

Legacy Format Files

This menu allows the user to directly access the format files used by a TopLeaf legacy partition or publication. From here, you can edit a legacy style, macro or mapping file. You can also export a set of legacy font macros for use in other publications.

[Warning] Warning

Direct access to TopLeaf's underlying format files is only required when working with legacy partitions.
