I use a transformation scenario to produce pdf from xml.

I have 2 problems :
1) since I use the $ask editor variable I cannot any more open the file directly from the scenario, despite I checked the 'open in browser/system application ' and the 'saved file' buttons in the Edit scenario panel..
This is the editor variable I use : ${ask('Nom du fichier',relative_url, 'enquête_${xpath_eval(/gdr/@type)}.pdf')}
The file is perfectly saved but not opened in browser/system application
I had not this problem when I used a fixed name in the scenario.

2) If I answer 'cancel' to the $ask question I have an error "The process 'Apache FOP' ended with code: -1234567."
How can I avoid this error message ?

Hi Lionel,

I can reproduce both these problems on our side, they look like bugs to me so I'll add internal issues for them.
We plan to release Oxygen 20 in about a month so we might not be able to fix them until then though.
But most probably in Oxygen 20.1, this Autumn.
