Checking the DITA-OT version number

You can determine the DITA Open Toolkit version number from a command prompt.


  1. Open a command prompt or terminal session, and then change to the directory where DITA Open Toolkit is installed.
  2. Issue the following command:
    Linux or macOS  bin/dita --version
    Windows bin\dita --version
    Tip: Add the absolute path for dita-ot-dir/bin to the PATH environment variable to run the dita command from any location on the file system without typing the path.


The DITA-OT version number appears on the console:

DITA-OT version 3.4
