    (solved) Customization not being picked up in 8.0

    All, I'd hoped that my first post about XMetaL 8.0 would be something more esoteric, but no.

    I'm running XMetaL on Windows Vista (yes, I know), and no matter what I do, it's not picking up my customizations when I choose the output DITA 1.5 Book via RenderX. My changes are in C:UsersjoanneAppDataRoamingSoftQuadXMetaL SharedDITA_OTdemofo and when they didn't work in the Customization folder, I made one change in the cfg folder, and that wasn't picked up either. I deleted the AppData folder and redid the customization in C:Program FilesCommon FilesXMetaL SharedDITA_OT so that it recreated the AppData folder.

    Outputting using XMetaL Enhanced PDF via RenderX XEP works fine.

    Help? Ideas? Am I doing something really really simple wrong?

    Thanks, as always,

    I think most of the PDF outputs use the demo/xmfo folder. Try making the change there.

    Thanks for the info, but I tried that and it doesn't work. However… 🙂

    Turns out that I had to put the changes in the C:UsersjoanneAppDataRoamingSoftQuadXMetaL SharedDITA_OTpluginsorg.dita.pdf2Customization folder. Works like a champ now.

    I knew it had to be something simple.
