[oXygen-user] XML Schema validation broken in 7.2?

Dear Allison,

Please try to put together a small sample (XML+schema) to show that 
problem and send that over as I do not remember a similar report against 
oXygen 7.2.

A couple of things you should try:
- Use also the "Reset Cache and Validate" action (at the left of the 
validate action in the toolbar) and see if you get different results
- Make sure you have the Options->Preferences -- XML -- XML Parser -- 
http://apache.org/xml/features/validation/schema-full-checking enabled 
(if that is disabled then type derivations and unique particle 
attribution errors are not checked).
- Make sure you have the schema that oXygen reports errors on as the 
schema associated for with those documents, for that use the "Open 
External Schema" action (also from the toolbar) to open the associated 
schema and validate that schema.

Best Regards,
