We use xMax in a java-swt application and get reproduceable crashes caused by xmcontrol.dll. We recognized, that the app do not crash, if we remove <TagColor> Elements from customization file (schemaname.ctm).
To cause the crash we did following steps:
- Open an editor (tab) with xMax and load an xml document with an element, that has specific TagColor set in customization file
- Open a second editor (tab) with xMax in foreground, first opened editor switches to background.
- Close second second editor, first editor got focus and comes in foreground
- app crashes

On Windows 7/64 bit the app is stable and don't crash.

Is this a bug on xmax or on Windows 10? Is this bug known?

We have also an app based on .net with xMax and a customization file, that contains TagColor-Elements, but this app is stable / do not crash.

OS: Win10 64bit German [Version 10.0.18362.418]
xMax: 9.0 (5.5, 6.0, 7.0, 8.0 was prior installed) 32 bit (also tested on 12.0 32bit)
Devolopment-Environment: Eclipse / java 8 32bit/ SWT
xml: xml file with schema file, css file and ctm file in local folder

part of ctm-File:
      <Name ns="">myElement</Name>

Hello All,

I would like to add 'Copy-to-clipboard' action (i.e. Copy button) to the text/code that is placed inside the <codeblock> element. For example, see the attached screenshot.

I am using XMetal 12.0 version with SDL Trisoft/CMS combination.

Do we need to customize any stylesheet? After customizing the stylesheet will it be supported in CMS?

Awaiting your inputs.

How often do you need to run this plugin?
Once per session? Once per document open? ...

Check out the macro On_Application_Open and On_Application_Document_Open.

Hi Developers,

I have a plugin that installed in XMETAL 12. Currently i am running that plugin by clicking the menu item. I want to run that plugin after an xml document is loaded. How can i do this using a macro?

I have seen forum posts, emails, and voicemails go unanswered since early September, so I also have been wondering what the story is.

Is it possible to print XMetal files in galley format (narrow column with wide right and/or left margin)? Right now we output the XMetal file as a galley using another program, mark it up manually, then key in the changes to the XMetal file for reoutput as pages. It would streamline things if we were able to use XMetal to directly output the galley for additional proofing, editing, etc and then key changes back to the XMetal file.  Thanks.

Hi, I'm really interested in customising XMetaL to allow copy editors to right click over a word or text string and then directly copying, opening a browser and searching an online database or search engine (e.g. various online dictionaries, search engines, Google, etc). This would save hours of repetitive work but I'm not sure if this is possible or where to start.
I'd be grateful for any suggestions or guidance.
