Extending frameworks that are extensions

Post by wschildbach » Thu Feb 14, 2019 5:31 pm

I am trying to extend a framework (Options->Preferences->Document Type Association, select a framework, then Extend). This is on Oxygen XML 18.1.

What I am observing is that it is not possible to extend a framework that is already an extension of another framework. Is this a known limitation?

Hi Wolfgang,

Unfortunately this is a limitation we currently have. If at some point we remove the limitation I will update this thread but I cannot give a timeline for this because it's something which requires quite some work on our side.
As a possible workaround a ".framework" file is just an XML file so you could maybe try to consider generating such ".framework" files using stylesheets.
