    My XMetaL Author Enterprise 8 freezes everytime I start it and very often when Im working in it. It says in the topbar (XMetaL Author Enterprise Not Responding). Any ideas?

    You might check and make sure that you don’t have any large zip files on your desktop such as the DITA-OT. I found that they can cause XMetaL to be very unresponsive.,1708.0.html

    Try resetting the workspace and see if that clears up your startup freezes.  You do this by pressing down the Ctrl-key while XMetaL is starting up….keep the Ctrl key pressed until a dialog appears asking to reset the workspace.  Click 'Yes'.

    If that doesn't remedy the matter, you could delete the %APPDATA%SoftQuad folder and again start XMetaL with the Ctrl-key pressed to reset the workspace.

    If none of these help, I recommend contacting Derek in our Customer Support department.
