In an XSLT 3.0 stylesheet I want to invoke from the Saxon function library saxon:validate(). oXygen offers the function as part of the autocomplete options when I type. But once the function is in place, the stylesheet is marked as invalid, saying that it cannot find a 1-argument function named {}validate(). I have tried validating against both PE and EE editions, and with 2- and 3-parameter versions, with the same effect.

Several of the other Saxon functions I tried worked fine: the stylesheet was both valid and operational. Thoughts?

I just found the problem: in my Preferences > XML > XSLT-XQuery > XSLT > Saxon > Saxon-HE/PE/EE I had been pointing to a configuration file, which was overriding the options I had set up to handle saxon:validate(). Hope this helps someone else who stubs their toe on the same issue.

Thanks for updating your post with the solution. Indeed the configuration file overrides the preferences.
