Reply to: On_Application_Before_Document_Open

The application level macros that make up the portion of XMetaL Author Enterprise's DITA customization are already using this event. It is used to figure out whether a document is a map or a topic. You would need to somehow merge your code with that code. However, as the DITA customization is considered a closed system that is not something I would recommend trying. If you are not working with DITA documents then XMetaL Author Essential does not include the DITA customization (and this event does not conflict with anything else).

Is this for DITA or non-DITA?
What do you need to do to the document before it is open?
