In my case doing what you've stated here works for any application and file type on my machine (Windows 10 Enterprise), including associating .xml files with Notepad, XMetaL Author, then back to the default (which in my case was originally set to IE), then back to XMetaL Author.

However, I see in various places people are saying they have used Windows 10's "Choose default app for filetype" to do this instead. Search for that in Settings.

I don't think the Windows Registry area that stores file associations has changed (the keys for each filetype are listed under \HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ by file extension, so for XML it's under \HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.xml) so it's a mystery to me why one way to set this through the Windows GUI would work and the other doesn't.

Maybe Office has some additional feature configured that grabs that file extension back if you change it? I recall an issue like that with some specific version of IE (around when XP was the main version of Windows people used) and in the past some other XML authoring tools also had a setting that would check at startup to see if XML files were associated with them and reset it if it wasn't.

I recently upgraded to Windows 10.
XMetaL 12 is no longer set as my default XML application.
How can I set XMetaL 12 as my default application for XML files?

I've tried right clicking a .XML file and choosing XMetaL as the "always use this application" button and it didn't stick.
I've tried using the file extension assocation too and it did not stick.
The system seems to default to "Office Handler" for opening XML files. Any tips would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

There are no APIs that provide this capability.

Is there a way to programatically tell two files to present themselves side by side?

My goal is to start with an output xml file in the whole screen, then user will be able to "jump" to relevant sections in a the source file. I already know how to open the related file and do the jump- just looking to find out how to have the file open and dock to the side of the original file.

Then if user opens another output xml file and jumps to the relevant section in the source file for that one the source file will open up in the already docked panel.

TL:DR- looking to start with opening a file in a docked panel so the work area will have two panels side by side

I am using XMetaL Author Enterprise 12.0

I was able to remove the cid attributes by updating the SDL Tridion Docs write plugin configuration.
The issue with selecting conrefs still persists.

Hi Sandra,

You would need to customize the DITA Open Toolkit that is included with XMetaL to do that. Someone has likely asked a similar question on the DITA Users group.
https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/dita-users/info

Also, this document has a section on updating headers and footers that might help get you started.

Severin

Thanks for the link.

Please submit a case to XMetaL Support that includes files they can use to reproduce the issue.
They can then try to reproduce the problem and either recommend a solution or use that information to correct the issue if the problem is in XMAX or Writing Tools (the spell checking engine).

I'm using XMetal 11 Author Enterprise version 11.0.0.066.

Is it possible to use WScript.CreateObject in a macro to enable event handling from .NET objects?  When I try to use the following jscript in a macro, the code fails to create the object.

   var objTest = null;
   objTest = WScript.CreateObject("testEvents.testEvent","objTest");


As I understand it, creating objects using new ActiveXObject or CreateObject generically does not allow the script to consume events raised from an object.  Any help with processing events raised from .NET objects would be appreciated.

I've tried it with XMAX13 but the behaviour is the same and the application crashes also.
Attached you find two videos.
In the first one the background spell checking is deactivated and everything works fine. In the second one it ist activated and the application crashes on the first try.

Do you have any other ideas?

Best regards,
Michael
