Are your trying use the DITA XML schemas?  If so, you need to have DITA Options set to version 1.3.  And our out-of-the-box catalogs for DITA XML schemas are setup to match the OASIS DITA URNs such as this example below:

<topic xmlns:xsi=""

Is this issue reproducible with the Journalist sample for you?
I can't seem to reproduce it, or I misunderstand the issue.

1. Select: File > New > Journalist (tab) > SchemaArticle (template)
2. No errors.

I would recommend sending a sample of any files needed to reproduce this issue to XMetaL Support so they can test with the same setup you have.

The first version of XMetaL Author to support Windows 10 was XMetaL Author Essential 11 and XMetaL Author Enterprise 11. If you need to run an older version of XMetaL Author on Window 10 and you experience problems that appear to be specific to Windows you can try Windows 10's "compatibility mode".

If Teamcenter 11.2.3 only works on Windows 10 then the ideal situation is to run XMetaL Author Enterprise 11, 12 or 13 (supported on Windows 10). If Teamcenter does not work with those versions of XMetaL Author Enterprise that isn't something we can fix, it is something Siemens would need to address.

I am trying to configure Kerberos Single Sign-On for Documentum DFS7.3 so that when I launch XMetaL Author Enterprise 12.0 with the URL http://server_name:9080/dfs/services, I am hoping to get logged-in automatically as long as the XMetaL user is a valid Active directory and Kerberos configured user.

I have done the things needed to do from DFS side with the help of OpenText support, but still the XMetaL12 shows up the login screen.

Just wondering if anyone has implemented SSO with above configuration? Any additional code snippet or something need to be added from XMetaL12 side?

Thank you in advance.

[This issue has been solved, and appeared to have nothing to do with schema-reference. (see last message)]

We have a serious issue that occurs since XMetaL Author 13.0 x86 (Binary#: Installer#: 13.0.0238)

When you open a file that holds a schema reference, XmetaL gives an unnecessary message "Path not found"
After the message the file opens correctly, and can be validated correctely against the schema.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create an XML file with a schema reference like:
<topic xmlns:xsi="" class="- topic/topic " xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="c:\temp\schema\topic.xsd">

2. Place the schema in the correct location.
3. Open the file in XMetaL.

Where does this message come from, and how can it be avoided?

We have a situation.
Customer currently uses Xmetal 9 with Teamcenter 10 on Windows 7

New situation is --- Teamcenter 11.2.3 on Windows 10

As per SPLM -teamcenter product integration information, Teamcenter only lists upto Version 10 for XMetal.
Upto and including Version 10 XMetal works only upto Windows 7.

Here in this case what the way out?? (XMetal version to work with Teamcenter 11 & Windows 10)

Rows are selected if they are highlighted with a grey-blue colour.
To select rows click to the left of the table at the first row then drag down.

In XMetal 12 Author Enterprise :
- I select some rows in a table (html)
- I click on "Sort.." in the contextual menu
- I cannot choose the "Selected Rows"option which is disable/grayed, the only option is to sort on the entire table

Does anyone know how to sort on a row selection ?

Ok, still a bit per-plexed with the file-association changes.
I did manage to get XMetaL to be the default application by going to .XML instance in the registry and setting the value to "ditafile". XMetaL had been the default application for dita files and dita maps, just not xmetal. So far this seems to work, so I'm sticking with it.

Discussion of how Microsoft has changed the way file associations work in Windows 10:

I suspect your version of Office is using the new way, which seems to take precedence over the old way of doing file associations. So, with Windows 10 there are actually two ways to associate file types. If you set it the old way (as you were trying) that will work for old applications, but only if you don't have a new "app" installed. In that case you need to set it the new way since the new way is apparently checked first and only if there is no association there does it look for the old file association method.

The post above explains why. Seems to me that they could have come up with a better solution, but that's how it is.
