[oXygen-user] Why Does Does Oxygen Think There is No Schema for This Document?

Hi Eliot,

Quick fix:
in Options->Preferences -- Document Type Association disable the "Only 
for local DTDs/XML Schemas" optimization flag.

When this flag is on we resolve non local files to an empty source. 
While this works for DTDs for XML Schemas the parser throws an exception 
  before it reports the root element and we do not get the chance to see 
the schema location attributes, thus the observed behavior.

This appears only when both conditions below are met:
"Enable DTD/XML Schema processing in document type detection" is enabled
"Only for local DTDs/XML Schemas" is disabled
and a document refers an XML Schema that is not mapped though an XML 
Catalog in a local copy.

We will fix this for 10.3 thanks for reporting it!

Best Regards,
George Cristian Bina
