What's New with Arbortext 6.0

What's new in the Arbortext 6.0 release?

The Arbortext 6.0 release demonstrates PTC’s continued commitment to supporting DITA

Enhanced support for DITA 1.2

With the new authoring UI for Key References in DITA 1.2, you can create and insert key references directly into your DITA documents with ease. If you are using Arbortext Content Manager, right-click on an object in the Resource Manager to quickly access a CMS context menu. Check-in and check-out content or even view its properties, for increased efficiency in authoring and reuse.

The Resource Manager also has improved usability, with a location field that is synchronized across tabs, eliminating the need to re-navigate as you switch tabs. In addition, it provides an author with various linking options for intelligent graphics. When setting up specialized DITA document types, the Resolved Document for Editing (RDE) and Resolved Document for Styling (RDS) document types are now automatically generated.
