Reply to: Upgrade to 6.0 — map editor crash?


Thanks for getting back to us on this. I tried your suggestion and it seemed to work at first. I got as far as being able to save a DITA Map. It crashed as soon as I tried saving the concept DITA topic I was inserting into the DITA Map.


Hi everyone,

I haven't yet been able to reproduce the issue with the Map Editor crashing (Murphy's 25th collorary: If anything can go wrong, it will on your customer's machines and not on the Support team's machines).

XMetaL 6.0 has some new options that affect how the Map Editor works. You can see these options by opening any DITA topic and then clicking Tools > DITA Options.  Can you try unchecking the two checkboxes at the bottom of this dialog, and let us know if that helps?
