Reply to: Prompted to save ditamaps when no changes madeJune 29, 2011 at 7:26 pm
Thanks, so I just saved a duplicate copy of a ditamap, opened the original in XMetal, was prompted to save changes when closing and said yes, opened it again, was prompted again and said yes again. Then I compared the ditamap file to the duplicate copy using Beyond Compare, and they're identical. I also tried to commit the file in the SVN repository and SVN tells me “no changes to commit”.
So Xmetal might be adding something, or trying to, but it's not adding or changing IDS or tags or anything visible to me or the file system.
The good news is that it wouldn't really seem to matter whether you say yes to the prompt or not, since it doesn't change anything.
