I am authoring in XMetal Author Enterprise 12.0
my conref files are in a sub folder called “shared paragraphs” under the .common content folder.
I've created a conref that contains 2 paragraphs and an unordered list. I can insert the list into a reference topic without problems but the paragraphs are not available.
I recreated the conref with only 1 paragraph and still wasn't available to insert into a reference topic.
I copied a paragraph from an older conref into the new one, and then edited the text. This one, I could insert into the topic without problems. I was able to copy that working paragraph into the conref with the list. That worked too.
Has anyone else seen this?

Update. Entering a custom attribute id for the
elements makes them available for insertion into a topic.
