either I am not getting the FrameMaker to work or it fails miserably once it comes to hierarchical authoring. I hope it's my mistake though. I have created a warehouse topic (wt.xml), using a DITA topic file. Inside the warehouse topic, I have created multiple topics, of course the topics are nested, I have also created audiences for each topic: some are chap1 and some are marked chap2.
Next, I have created two simple ditamaps. In both ditamaps, I insert a topicref to the warehouse topic. Consequently, they look identical so far. Last, I have created two ditaval files: chapter1.ditaval and chapter2.ditaval. In the former, I include audiences with value chap1 and in the latter audiences with value chap2. Then, "as instructed by FrameMaker", I save Ditamap as Composite Document and activate Prompt For DitaVal File. It prompts for the ditaval file, I click coose. Now, I expect that in ditamap1, I see the topics, I have marked with chap1 and for ditamap2 the ones I have marked with chap2. Nope, nothing is filtered.
I really appreciate if someone would shed some light.
UPDATE: ditaval works, if I exclude the topics that I do not want see rather than the including the topics that I want to see. If I only use include, it includes everything, not only the topics that I marked. All good 🙂
