When I open DITA xml files in DV X, the sentences appear to be badly segmented.
The variable don't appear.
There is just a space where the variable should be but I can't see what variable is being used.

Does anyone know how to handle conref variables correctly in DV X ?

Prevent segmentation? Aug 5, 2009

Have you tried that option when importing the file? Or would it be an option to alter the XML filter?

Or, since you also use Trados (as I see from your other posts), maybe just turn it into a TTX file and import it into DVX as such. This will most certainly work, as long as you do not forget to pre-segment the file with Workbench.
