    [This issue has been solved, and appeared to have nothing to do with schema-reference. (see last message)]

    We have a serious issue that occurs since XMetaL Author 13.0 x86 (Binary#: Installer#: 13.0.0238)

    When you open a file that holds a schema reference, XmetaL gives an unnecessary message “Path not found”
    After the message the file opens correctly, and can be validated correctely against the schema.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Create an XML file with a schema reference like:

    2. Place the schema in the correct location.
    3. Open the file in XMetaL.

    Where does this message come from, and how can it be avoided?

    Is this issue reproducible with the Journalist sample for you?
    I can't seem to reproduce it, or I misunderstand the issue.

    1. Select: File > New > Journalist (tab) > SchemaArticle (template)
    2. No errors.

    I would recommend sending a sample of any files needed to reproduce this issue to XMetaL Support so they can test with the same setup you have.

    Are your trying use the DITA XML schemas?  If so, you need to have DITA Options set to version 1.3.  And our out-of-the-box catalogs for DITA XML schemas are setup to match the OASIS DITA URNs such as this example below:

    Thank you for your prompt response.

    I soved the issue. It is completely my mistake.
    Last week it took me several hours to drill it down to the schema-reference, but it is not that!

    ! Sorry for bothering you unnecessarily.

    (FYI: It had to do with a macro writing the “topic_HTML_Custom.xsl” to the roamingsoftquad..display folder.)
