Reply to: Setting up CTM file for XML Schema based documentAugust 5, 2009 at 11:07 pm
I think Su-Laine is correct. Unless you have XMetaL Developer installed, changes you make to customization files typically require you to restart XMetaL Author.
It could also be that (if you are hand-coding your CTM files) you have introduced an error. In most cases XMetaL Author will simply ignore things it does not understand. In some cases it will read the file up to that point and ignore the rest. In some cases it might skip over a section it doesn't understand. In rare cases it may be possible to crash the product as well, though I believe most of these have been ironed out (ideally you shouldn't be feeding the product invalid configuration settings anyway, we only test with files generated by XMetaL Developer as that is the expected use case).
