Problem converting to Oxygen 6.0

I do not believe this is a particular Oxygen problem. I have a large number of files making up a complete document. They all start with: <!DOCTYPE book PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML V4.0//EN" "C:\Program Files\Oxygen 5.1\frameworks\docbook\dtd/docbookx.dtd" [ Do I have to edit every single file ...

It turns out that you have to enable PNG processing explicitly. Without this, the references to the bugs are silently ignored.

I can only comment on my experience. As for 1, I can only say that even on a lowly G4 1.2GHz iBook, I don't have to type slowly. If you believe that I shouldn't be getting the problems I do, I would appreciate your suggesting some clue as to why my documents get littered with <abbrev> tags. I take i...

I was originally asking if something could be done (disabling pop-ups). Rather than being told "It's not possible", I was given suggestions that didn't work (in the verison I'm using), or didn't actually address my question. It is possible that the way things are done is appropriate for creating com...

I have reverted to verison 5.1 following problems with V6; your suggestion does not work in version 5.1. I am converting a very large document to use XML.

There must be something I am saying that is confusing you. I do NOT want the system to add a closing tag and leave the cursor between the two tags. I simply want </ to close the currently-outstanding tag. Doing what you suggest (which doesn't work anyway, turning off Tag Insight does exactly that - ...

I think you still misunderstand my question. I want to be in a state where two things happen: 1: There are NO pop-ups. 2: When I type "<" followed by "/", I get the automatic completion of the end tag (without having to type anything else). So, if I type the six characters "<", "a", ">", "x", "<", "...

If you read my question you will see:
How can I stop these pop-ups appearing and yet not lose the related
feature that is actually useful: auto-completion of tags?
Turning off tag insight also turns off automatic tag completion!

Preventing pop-ups

When I use Oxygen to create an XML document, it insists on popping up lists of options. For example, after typing "<" it displays a list of the items it thinks could follow. I find this extremely irritating, as the pop-up invariably covers text I need to look at and it is cumbersome to get rid of it...

Problems with V6.0

I have just upgraded to V6.0. First, it unhelpfully threw away all of my carefully-set options: I have put them back. However, now it insists on doing things I most certainly do not want it to do. In particular, whenever I type in a tag, it ALWAYS follows it by the closing tag. I do not want this. I...

Problem with editing more than about 16-18 documents

In Oxygen 5.1, as the number of open documents grows above about 18, the editing performance drops dramatically. The point at which things start to slow down is slightly variable.

If I understand what you have said, I would have to change each appearance of the character manually whenever I wish to generate the PDF file. The character appears over 200 times! This would render Docbook useless for any large project.

I hope I have misunderstood.
