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?

Please contact the JustSystems sales people.

In general you need to go through them to get any XMetaL software other than the current release of XMetaL Author Enterprise which runs in trial mode by default, so it's used for evaluations (licenses are still provided by the sales team). There is no trial mode for XMAX so we do not make it readily available.

Please contact the JustSystems sales department to obtain any version of any XMetaL software. They will provide everything: EULA, download, and license file.

Thanks Derek,

Just curious how I would get the latest release/build of XMax?  The website seems to indicate that XMax 11 is the latest release.  We were provided with but you mentioned using and I'm not sure how to obtain different binaries.  The Downloads page has 2 options - both for XMetaL Author, nothing for XMax.

I see that XMetal Author is at v13 but we are not using Author - just XMax.
