[oXygen-user] Sharing project file on Win XP and Mac OS X

Hello Florent,

When the transformation scenarios are stored at project level the name 
of the file from the association [transformed file - scenario] is saved 
with a relative path. If the file is not located in the folder of the 
project file or a subfolder of that folder then the path saved in the 
association will be something like ../../other_folder/file.xml. Please 
make sure that this relative path exists also on the other machine (the 
Windows machine in your case) when it is resolved relative to the 
location of the project file.

Other problem could be that the project was already opened in Oxygen on 
the other machine (the Windows machine) when you updated the project 
file from the SVN repository. The project should be refreshed 
automatically in the Project view when it is changed on disk by other 
application (the SVN client in your case) and we will fix that in a 
future version. If this happens in your case please reopen the project 
file that was updated from SVN by going to menu Project -> Reopen 
Project as a workaround until we fix the problem.
