Pretty Printing not being applied to Table elementsMarch 6, 2009 at 5:50 pmParticipants 0Replies 1Last Activity 13 years, 9 months ago
I have XMetaL Author Essential 5.5 and have been editing the CTM file so that I get indentation in the text view. It seems to work on everything except Tables:
When I create a table in tag view and go into text view I see this:
I then have to place spaces in between the elements in order to trigger the indentation:
Once I switch back to text view the table is nicely indented:
If it helps here is the section in the CTM file that specifies how the Table should be formatted:
Cell in the body of a table
It must be something to do with my CTM file as the Journalist template has no problems formatting Table elements.

If pretty printing is being applied but only after you manually introduce whitespace that sounds like a bug to me. I can't reproduce this in 5.1 so I'll load up 5.5 when I get a minute and see if it is specific to that version.
If you can provide your schema and a sample XML document to XMetaL Support it that would be best. In theory it should not make a difference, but if this is due to a bug then it might.
There's nothing wrong with your CTM settings that I can see, provided that what you show in your “the table is nicely indented” section is what you actually want (there are far more pretty printing settings available).
