    Hi,

    In the XMetal Help there is a topic “Publishing configuration files”

    Can you please refresh my mind:

    (1) In …AuthorDITAXACssharedrenditionsprint_.xml
    i add one or a few new configurations
    (2) Start XMetal
    (3) Select Tools > Configure Output
    (4) Click Add
    (5) Select at the bottom one of my new options, and enter some details.
    (6) Now I open my ditamap and select the new option and I get the error message:
        “manageInstruction: invalid configuraion ID”

    2, 3 years ago when developing our first plugins for XMetal 5.5 I remember to have the same issue, but I forgot the problem & solution.
    – Is it in missing parameters?
    – Is there a mismatch between the IDs?
    – Do I need to edit the …AuthorDITAXACssharedrenditionsprint_local.xml ?

    I think I found it.

    My custom print_……xml was missing a section 
        ….
     

     
        ….
     

    I was assuming it was added in some way to the master, but these stay separate and so need globals.
