The following provides solutions to several simple technical problems that you might encounter when using Atomik Xport and Atomik Enhancer
There are three main areas that could cause this to happen, as follows:
In this case, first check your ruleset to ensure that you have mapped the styles and style sheets to the correct DTD elements. If you have then you might also want to look and see if there are any conflicts in the rules whereby two pieces of text have identical styling and could therefore by construed by Atomik Xport as being two or more different types of content. See Chapter 9 - Working with DTDs for Atomik Xport for further details.
Make sure that the Image element is declared as per the definition in this manual (see Chapter 9 - Extracting Images). Also make sure that your DTD has been defined in such a way that the DTD allows Images to occur where they occur in the sequence of the QuarkXPress layout.
Make sure that the Table element is declared as per the definition in this manual (see Chapter 10 - Extracting Tables). Also make sure that your DTD has been defined in such a way that the DTD allows Table elements to occur where they occur in the sequence of the QuarkXPress document.
Atomik Xport extracts the content in the order described in your ruleset’s box-ordering preferences. One reason that it doesn’t appear to be extracting in the correct order is if you have the ‘Grouped’ preference enabled and Atomik Xport is therefore allowing QuarkXPress grouping to overrule the specified box ordering. Another issue to investigate is the use of inline image and text boxes. If your ruleset does not have the ‘Inline’ preference enabled, any inline picture and text boxes will be extracted after the text box over which they occur rather than in the exact geometric position in which they are on the page. Therefore try enabling the ‘Inline’ preference
There are a couple of reasons that this might occur. The first thing to check is the tolerance in the ruleset’s box-ordering preferences. See Section 5.6.3 in Chapter 5 for details. The other related issue could be that you have the group option enabled in the box-ordering . In this case check that the inline text and image boxes are not grouped with other boxes that would therefore effect the overall area of the group and therefore the inline tolerance.
This is most likely because you are using a special font to create your bullets rather than the standard bullet character. As Atomik Xport uses UTF8 font encoding and does not including font information in the extraction, the only solution is to either perform a search and replace on the extracted XML (providing that the character is unique) or replace the special font character you are using with the standard bullet character.
Check that you have included the Atomik Xport styling elements in your DTD and that they have been configured in such a way that each styling element can contain all of the other styling elements. See Chapter 13 for further details and examples. You should also make sure that you have not accidentally deleted the rules from the ruleset for your styling elements.
