suppressing validation messages (catalogs tab)

Post by twan » Tue Apr 16, 2019 1:25 am

Every time Oxygen validates an XML-file it shows/pop-ups a tab called "catalogs" show which catalogs it used and found (or didn't find) while validating the document.

Every time it pops up, it occupies half of my (vertical) screen space and I need to close the tab to regain some screen space.

Is there a setting suppressing this "catalogs tab" (Not the tab mentioned in the manual) or, at least, limiting to a number of lines at the bottom of the screen?

Catalog verbosity is by default set to "None". You've probably set it to "Unresolved entities" or "All messages" and forgot about it. Check in Options > Preferences, XML / XML Catalog. This causes the Catalogs view to keep appearing

If you want to keep the tab, but make it smaller, just resize the Results region. If you hover the mouse just between the editing area and the Results (Catalogs) area a resize mouse icon appears and you can click and drag to resize the Results area.
