Hi, I am facing a challenge to change the font properties within DITA. I know that it cannot be done directly in dita topic xml files. So, I decided to add some entities to paragraph (p) in ..\xml\DITA_1.3\app\technicalContent\edd\topic.edd.fm. I noticed this maybe done via ..\xml\DITA_1.3\app\base\edd\commonElements.eddmod.fm and ..\xml\DITA_1.3\app\base\edd\highlightDomain.eddmod.fm. After adding one entitity in the latter files, I attemted to update the former, i.e. topic.edd.fm in order to import the changes. However, those text insets under paragraph element were not updated and so my new entity was not imported. Am I missing sth here?
I'm not sure if FrameMaker supports DITA RelaxNG grammars, but you are welcome to use my DITA specialization utility at
Using this utility, you can specialize elements as follows:
<elementdomain domain="myelements-d"> <specialize elements="myfig" from="fig"/> <specialize elements="myp" from="p"/> </elementdomain>
and the utility creates a DITA plugin, ready to use.
following the instruction you provided in the readme, I tried to reproduce some of your example on my Windows 10 but failed. Maybe you can give me some hint what these messages are going to tell me:

Hi Amitoj, I managed to edit the topic 1.3 edd and add one element to it using the manual. I can then import the edd into the framemaker template and create customized DITA topics using fm files. However, when I tried to save that edd as dtd in order to create a specialized dtd, the parsing was sborted. At first, I thought that my newly added element caused inconsistency. Then I tried to do the same using the original topic1.3 edd. The parsing was aborted again. In fact, as I would like to use xml files, I would need to bring my customization into the dtd. The documentation only explains how to edit the edd. It does not say how to create a dtd based on that. Any help or hint to clarify this would be highly appreciated.
Can you drop me an email on the same. I can share the exact issue in EDD which is causing it to save as DTD failure. We have fixed this issue and would be part of future update or definitely part of FM2020.
