Request your authorization code and verify that everything is set up properly.
After you’ve run the DITA-FMx installer and set up the structure applications, there are a couple things that you may need to do before you’re ready to use DITA-FMx.
If you are new to DITA-FMx, you’ll need to request an authorization code. For a 30-day trial authorization code, choose themenu item (near the bottom of the menu). Follow the on-screen instructions and enter your email address on leximation.com. Your trial authorization code will be sent to the email address you provide. If your trial authorization code has expired and you need more time, just contact us by email and we’ll be happy to provide an extension.
If you’ve purchased DITA-FMx, your permanent authorization code is available in your Tool Administration area on leximation.com. Just log on to leximation.com, then click the “Tool Administration” link in the lower left of any page. On this page you should see an entry for DITA-FMx with a “request auth code” link. Click that link and your auth code will be sent to the email address registered to your leximation.com account.
Once you get your authorization code (trial or permanent), select themenu item and provide the information requested. This should unlock the items in the DITA-FMx menu.
Now you should verify that the proper structure applications are selected in the DITA Options dialog. Choose DITA Structure Applications topic; if these applications have been properly installed, their names should be available in the drop-lists in the Options dialog.. The Topic, Map, and Book applications should list those that you want to use. If you’re using the default DITA-FMx applications that would be DITA-FMx-Topic-1.2, DITA-FMx-Map-1.2, and DITA-FMx-Book-1.2. If these applications aren’t available in the drop-lists, you should go back and review the
You may also want to set other options at this time. Use the Help button in the Options dialog to read about the many options available in DITA-FMx.
