Hi Derek,

It doesn't seem to matter from where I copy it. I've copied it from NotePad++, from Slack, and even from this forum. I am pasting it into a reference-type DITA topic (although it doesn't matter the topic type). I had only tried it in tags on view. I just tried it in plain text view. XMetaL does not crash when I paste it in plain text view, but when I try to switch back to tags on view, it says "Unknown tag name. The tag name "PrincipalType:name" is not defined."  It does not switch back to tags on view unless I remove the string. So evidently, even if it's pasted into a codeblock, it interprets it as a tag.

Several people in our organization have tried this. They all reported that XMetaL crashed as soon as they paste the string. Is there some way to enclose that type of content so it is not interpreted as XML tags?

Thanks,
Dana

I can't seem to reproduce this with any files we provide out of the box: DITA, the Journalist sample, etc, but...

Where are you copying that content from?

That is going to make a difference. How XMetaL Author handles what it is asked to paste depends on what is on the Windows clipboard, and that will vary widely depending on which application added it onto the clipboard.

Which document type are you pasting into?

That is going to make a big difference as XMetaL Author handles some things on its own (natively) but it can be extended using script to handle more clipboard content types, and to handle the content in different ways, modify it before pasting, perform transformations on it, as well as perform actions after pasting.

The view you are pasting the content into is going to make a difference as well: Tags On, Normal or Plain Text.

Unfortunately, this feature has not been documented yet.

However, if you look at the CTM files for the DITA authoring functionality (in XMetaL Author Enterprise) I believe most of the possible settings are in there.

I'm using XMetaL 12 Author Enterprise. Pasting the following string into a paragraph (or even a codeblock) causes XMetaL to crash every time:

cluster-acl deny-principal <PrincipalType:name> [force|allow-host <String>|deny-host <String>|operation <String>]

Any ideas why?

Update. Entering a custom attribute id for the <p></p> elements makes them available for insertion into a topic.

I am authoring in XMetal Author Enterprise 12.0
Binary#: 12.0.0.079
Installer#: 12.0.0183
my conref files are in a sub folder called "shared paragraphs" under the .common content folder.

I've created a conref that contains 2 paragraphs and an unordered list. I can insert the list into a reference topic without problems but the paragraphs are not available.

I recreated the conref with only 1 paragraph and still wasn't available to insert into a reference topic.

I copied a paragraph from an older conref into the new one, and then edited the text. This one, I could insert into the topic without problems. I was able to copy that working paragraph into the conref with the list. That worked too.

Has anyone else seen this? 
Thanks

In the CTM file, after the <Templates> section (as a sibling to that section), add the following:

  <Tables>
    <CALSTable useFindInsertLocation="true">
      <table alias="your nice name here">Table</table>
      <tgroup>tgroup</tgroup>
      <tbody>tbody</tbody>
      <thead>thead</thead>
      <colspec>colspec</colspec>
      <row>row</row>
      <entry>entry</entry>
    </CALSTable>
  </Tables>

If you don't have XMetaL Developer installed you may need to restart XMetaL Author for the CTM file to be reloaded.
Thank you so much! It works!

Is there a CTM syntax reference somewhere? I looked in the XMetaL Author and Developer help, but didn't find one.

Hello,

One of our customers uses a complex XML Schema to validate their contents, which they edit with XMetaL.
They have a table model which is based on CALS, but has more possible sub elements.

An example XML file with the XSD file are attached to this issue.

The problem: By default, XMetaL does not display the tgroup content as a table.
When I enhance the local CTM file as suggested in this topic:
http://forums.xmetal.com/index.php?topic=3936.0
 <Tables>
    <CustomTable useFindInsertLocation="true">
      <table>tgroup</table>
      <row>row</row>
      <cell>entry</cell>
    </CustomTable>
  </Tables>


then XMetaL does display the tgroup content as a table; but it does not offer all editing possibilities for tables.
Especially the "Merge Table Cell" functions are not working.

What do I have to do to allow table cell merging?

Note: With earlier versions of XMetaL (9.0 or older), the merge-cell functions worked for the model of our customer, even without customization of the CTM file.
The current product, where merge cell is not working, is:
XMetaL 13 Author Essential
Binary#: 13.0.0.029
Installer#: 13.0.0213

In XMetaL Author Enterprise 12.0, sometimes the content in Plain Text View displays in such a way that some content is shifted to the left, covering other content (see the attached image). Restarting XMetaL sometimes fixes it, but sometimes not.
