Create XSLT Documentation ERROR

Post by Oleksii » Thu Apr 11, 2019 4:01 pm

I'm getting the following error while trying to create documentation from a master XSLT-stylesheet which includes few others:
-E Am empty sequence is not allowed as the value of parameter $refText
Note that when choosing settings >>Documentation only (in the dialog box) I can create it for the same stylesheet. So the problem occurs only if I choose select all.

The stylesheets are valid and well-formed.

What version of Oxygen are you using (Help > About)?
I could not reproduce this issue on our test files with v21.0. I've logged an issue to investigate, but it would be useful if we had a sample with which to reproduce the issue.
If possible, please send us a sample file (or the full stylesheet hierarchy) either by email to or via our Technical Support page.

PS: Try to generate documentation after clearing the box for "References" (from "Included components details").

Just to update this thread, Oleksii gave us samples on which the problem can be reproduced and we'll try to fix the problem in Oxygen 22 (February next year).
