Hello Derek,

Many thanks for your reply.

After research I have got the solution. Actually we are using customize xmetal.ini file. We have created our own startup, Macro, Icon, Display folder and the corresponding path has been mentioned in xmetal.ini file. Problem what the naming convention used for ini file. With XMetal 5.5, 10 and 11, the ini file name was 'xmetal.ini', but with XMetal 6.0 we have to change it as 'xmetal60.ini'.

After changing the ini file as xmetal60.ini the problem has resolved. :) It was just a hit and try.

I really appreciate your work and prompt resolution on concerns.

Again many thanks.

There are quite a few things that will disable a toolbar button that is supposed to be configured to run a macro. Here are a few guesses:

1. The API DisableMacro() is being called to disable the macros that are disabled.

2 If a TBR file is used (not recommended) it might be incorrectly formatted or broken, or the user may have made modifications. Or it could be that the complete rewrite of the menu and toolbar system that was done with version 8 (and inherited by all newer releases) was incomplete and somehow unable to read all permutations of TBR files created with older versions.

3. If the toolbars are being modified/added via MCR file through script using the CommandBars object (recommended) then the script may have issues. That is unlikely if it is working for one version. However, the MCR file may be broken or missing for the version or installation where the behaviour is not what you expect.

4. Perhaps the behaviour of the software itself is different if run on an untested / unsupported version of Windows. None of the version 6 XMetaL products were tested on Windows 10 and none of them were supported on that release (the latest version of Windows at the time of testing was XP SP3). The first version to be tested and released for Windows 10 was XMetaL Author Enterprise version 11 (followed shortly afterwards by XMetaL Author Essential 11 and XMAX 11).

Hello Derek,

We have running macros within XMetal. Macros are tested with XMetal 5.5, 10 and 11 and working fine. Due to some reason we have to configure our macros on XMetal 6.0

The problem is that after deploying macros on XMetal 6.0 we noticed that few macros buttons get disable when running XMetal. Please suggest what to do.

I am attaching screen grab of same XML opened in XMetal 11.0 and XMetal 6.0 with same macros and configuration. We are using Windows 10.

Thanks in advanced.

I have specialized two elements from the p tag and am trying to configure XMetal to repeat those tags when a user presses Enter. The definitions use the same form as the definition for the p tag, but when I press Enter when my cursor is in one of the new tags, I get a p tag. Here are the definitions.

          <Name ns="">hwScScene</Name>
          <FollowedBy ns="">hwScScene</FollowedBy>
          <Name ns="">hwScLine</Name>
          <FollowedBy ns="">hwScLine</FollowedBy>

I have also defined templates and element properties. Is there something missing? I am using XMetal 9.0.

Never mind ... I was looking at the wrong release notes ... .NET Framework is required and after installing XMetaL Author 12 with the Documentum integration is working on Win7 64-bit

I have XMetaL Author 12 (64-bit) installed along with the Documentum integration on a newly built Win7 64-bit machine.  After fresh installs, opening XMetaL Author 12 yields the following error which only started showing up after installing the Documentum integration:

Run-Time Error
Line 4, Column 2
Description: Automation server can't create object

Are .NET libraries required?  Below is all I see in release notes.  I have no issues on my Win10 laptop, but need to get this to work on a Win7 machine as well.

System requirements:
Microsoft Windows Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10 or 2008/2012 Server
Pentium 133 MHz processor
256 MB of available RAM (512 MB recommended)
Color display with a minimum resolution of 1024 x 768 or higher
Minimum 615 MB of disk space (800 MB recommended)
Additional memory may be required to generate some types of output using the DITA Open Toolkit.
Microsoft Internet Explorer 10 or newer
MSXML3.dll 8.0.7820.0 or newer (MSXML 3.0)
MSXML6.dll 6.20.5002.0 or newer (MSXML 6.0)

The order definitely does not matter. It would be useful if you were able to submit the files you are using to XMetaL Support so they can have a look and try to reproduce the issue.

We have actually resolved the issue by reordering our DTD elements. 

Previously the parent element was defined before the Table elements in our DTD.  Relocating the parent element to follow the Table elements resolved the issue.  I'm not sure why we only started seeing the issue in Xmax 11 and not in Xmax 7.  I wasn't aware that the element declaration order mattered in a DTD...

Thanks Derek, we are reaching out to the sales department but do you have any ideas/suggestions on what may be causing the issue?

Can you tell me what IsSpellChecker() is actually doing?  What does it look for?  I'm assuming it must be looking for something specific in the registry since the files are present on the filesystem but can you provide more details so we can see if the problematic machines are actually missing information?
