Ignore that last sentence - I thought you were referring to something we'd talked about earlier. It's early here - I don't quite have my wits yet.

Within our projects, we have several files that are opened with system applications outside of Oxygen. Access, Excel, various graphic editing programs, for example. I can open these from the project by selecting "open with->system application" from the contextual menu. When I double click ...

Reusable Components View

Did version 20 change the way in which content references are inserted from the reusable components view? Before version 20, when a conref was inserted from this view, they were inserted as a conref element. Now, they are being inserted as conkeyref elements. This causes our custom PDF transformatio...

Re: Integrator Error Oxygen Version 20

That was my assumption. After hearing back from you, I met with our IT department and found out that they had applied special permissions on our Oxygen 19 directory. I had them do the same to the Oxygen 20 folder, and that did the trick.

Thanks again.

Could this be the problem? I noticed a while back that our network drives were no longer designated by just a letter. Instead they look like this:

Something tells me this might be the source of several of my recent Oxygen headaches.
