I found out that it is the Windows 10 1803 update that broke the spell checker (just for anyone else who comes across this issue)

My company uses XMetaL 8 Author Enterprise. I'm not an expert in the tool myself, but when I try to open it I'm getting an error that the tool can't hit the Registration server. When I try to manually supply the lic file we were given, I can see the license server address. When I try to ping your license server I cannot reach it. I also tried a 3rd party website that does a multi-location ping and it was also unable to reach the server.

I can supply more information if needed (I don't know if there is more than one registration server).

I have reinstalled Xmetal again - removing the Corel folder from Documents.
I deleted the folder specified, but that has not fixed anything.

It's incredibly weird.

It doesn't say Spell Check Completed. When I click Spell checker, the Xmetal window becomes inactive, as if the spell checker has popped up, however it is nowhere to be found.

It does spell check while typing...I can see red squiggly lines.

I can run Spell Check in Files - that works.

I will try uninstalling again.

No error messages are displayed?

It doesn't say "Spell check completed. Close Spell Checker?" (in the case where there are no spelling errors)

What happens if you enable "Check spelling while typing" on the General tab of the Options dialog? In a document with spelling errors you don't see any red squiggles?

To reinstall and make sure all the spell checking files are rewritten (in case something is missing or broken) you can try this:
1. Uninstall.
2. Delete this entire folder if it exists (that's where the spell checker lives):
C:\Program Files (x86)\Corel\Shared\XMetaL\Writing Tools
3. Install.

I'm using Xmetal Author Essential x64 11.0.

I have an .sgm file open in Tags On View and I tried to run a spellcheck using Tools > Spellcheck and using F7, except nothing happens.

I have tried repairing and re-installing the product, but still cannot get spellcheck to work.

Anyone have any ideas on what may be wrong?

OK, so here's my fix:

1. Open your .JS file in XMetaL Developer's script editor (double click on it in the Project window).
2. In the Visual Studio main menu open File and select Save As.
3. In the Save As dialog save using the same filename and path (to overwrite the file) but change the encoding (using the little arrow on the Save button) to "Unicode - Codepage 1200". This is Microsoft's equivalent of UTF-16.

Note that this assumes your file contains the correct characters (if not fix them before step 3).

Now when you build the project the MCR file will be encoded to UTF-16 (which you cannot change) and because this .JS input file is in the same encoding (also UTF-16) there won't be any character encoding issues.

Why building a project doesn't trigger a proper encoding change from UTF-8 (or whatever other encoding you might have the .JS file in) into UTF-16 for the MCR file I don't know, but I don't know that it is worth looking into if the fix is this simple.

That might be easier.

This topic has been moved to DITA and XMetaL Discussion.

Presumably this is DITA.

What does the XML look like?

I would check to see that there isn't some stray border attribute set for that portion of the table.
