SVG graphics preview??

Hi,

Are there any plans to include an SVG viewer in XMLmind? Or, is there any way of adding an SVG viewer as an add-on? I'm thinking of Batik, an all-Java utility.

With best regards,
Hakan S.

Large XML file problem

Hi,
I have found a problem while trying to open larger xml files (more than 
3MB, about 100 000 elements) in XML Mind editor. I try to increase java 
heap at size 512M but it didn't fix the problem.
The editor loads the file from cache, then tryes to delete blank spaces 
and then stop trying to open the file (and the exception at 
com.xmlmind.xmledit.xsd.validate.NameRe.match(NameRE.java:637) is thrown ).
I don't know it it is a bug or if editir simlpy don't support that big 
files.
Thank you for your answer.

Bc. Jaroslav Svoboda, Pilsen, Czech Republic

This has been done a few years ago. Personnally I use the SVG add-on all
time. My vector graphics are created using Inkscape[*].

Please use "Options|Install Add-ons", select add-on called "Apache Batik
image toolkit plug-in ", click OK and restart XXE.

[*] Tips:
* Use a (recent) version of Inkscape that has a "Fit page to selection"
option in its "File|Document Preferences" dialog box.
* Turn this option on after you have finished your drawing.

This may be a stack size problem (*stack*, not heap: NameRe.match is
stack intensize).

See http://www.xmlmind.com/xmleditor/faq.html#outofmemory for
instructions explaining how to specify the stack and heap size.

if setting "-Xss4m -Xmx512m" or even "-Xss8m -Xmx1024m" does not solve
the problem, then you have probably found a bug. In such case, I'll need
your XML file and its associated DTD or XSD in order to be able to fix
the bug.

navigation between pages

Hello,

I'm normalizing technical documentations with DocBook.
I found XXE, a very useful tool.

I transform my DocBook file into a generated website with xsltproc as explained on this page :
http://www.codeproject.com/winhelp/docbook_howto.asp

I would like to display a link on 1 page of my generated website to go to another page.
How can I modify my source DocBook file with XXE to add this link on one page of my generated website?

Thanks a lot for your help.

Arnaud.

Your question is not directly related to XXE. Your question is about
DocBook.

You need to create one of these elements:
* <link>
* <xref>
* <ulink>
* <olink>

When DocBook is converted to HTML, *all* the above DocBook elements are
translated to <a href="xxx">.

You need to choose between <link>, <xref>, <ulink> and <olink> depending
on the relationship that exists between the link and its target. This
relationship does not depend on how you'll convert your DocBook document.

For example, <link> is a link to another place in the same DocBook
document, <ulink> is a link to an URL found on the Internet, etc.

More information in "DocBook: The Definitive Guide" by Norman Walsh and
Leonard Muellner, http://www.docbook.org/tdg/en/html/docbook.html

CSS Stylesheet binging, how?

When I insert a  system type DOCTYPE declarartion in a docbook.xml file I seem til loose the CSS binding in XXE, and it presentes the document with "no Style".
 
I need the local DOCTYPE since I xi:include parts of the document using the xpointer="element(some_id)"
 
I am using Standard Edition 3.5.1
 
Please advise what I'm doing wrong
 
Thanks,

Hello,

I need to choose a solution to edit xml files, who maybe use in the futur in
my society Thales.

After some research, I have find your product XML Mind editor Personnal. 

After some test, I can't use a personnal template with a specific DTD ! 

XML Mind Personnal 3.6.0 can use personnal DTD ? 
Otherwise maybe after an upgrade ?

Best regards,

Yes, you can do that but you have to create a *configuration* file (a
simple, declarative, XML file) for your custom DTD.

How to do that is explained here:
