Per the following screenshot (oops, the oXygen forum provides no way to upload a screenshot from my computer), XML Editor 22.1 overlays my project's XPR file with a red-encircled exclamation point.
I've been working with computers since 1981 (many years before GUIs), use Python 3 to create content-conversion and content analysis utilities, have been by choice been using Linux Mint as my operating system since December 2017. Point being that I am a reasonably skilled user of computers and computer software. Yet I cannot for the life of me find my way past this counter-informative "error" message.
- IF I hover over the XPR item, I'm told that the XPR file is missing. But it seems that it is NOT because below it are the (DITA-OT's) project files.
- I've tried tricking oXygen XML into recognizing an empty XPr project file by manually creating an empty XPR file. That didn't work.
- The message provided when I hover over the "error" provides me with NO idea how to clear this reputed "error".
[*]I have tried multiple times to use oXygen XML 22.1 to create a new XPR file. The usual MATE GUI sequence does NOT create an XPR file.
My opinion is that oXygen XML's Project tools would do better to more fully conform with "normal" Create / Read / Update /Delete (CRUD) file management conventions. As I said, as one who has been using computers since 1981, I find oXygen's project management utilities to be counter-intuitive if not functionally opaque...
I'll happily provide any additional information required to more fully explain the problem. In the meantime it's more than annoying to have what seems to be an otherwise functional oXygen XML Project complain that it can't find itself. Sigh...
Cheers & thanks in advance,
