Problems which are solved by upgrading XXE and/or the Java™ runtime are not listed here. Therefore, the first thing to do if you have problems is to upgrade XXE to latest version and to upgrade Java to latest supported version (no beta please!).
Workaround: change the editing context of XXE, for example, by moving the caret to another XML node.
The "Continue Numbering" entry of the menu displayed by the "Change list type" button found in the DITA Topic and DocBook tool bars is not correctly rendered in the styled view of the document in all but the simplest cases. For example, "Continue Numbering" has no visual effect on ordered lists having an ordered list ancestor.
The reason of this limitation is that the implementation of "Continue Numbering" leverages standard CSS counters. However, when you'll convert your document to other formats such as HTML, PDF, DOCX, etc, there are no such limitations and "Continue Numbering" should give you the expected results.
Workaround: when XXE is started in a directory which has an UNC filename, loading the XML catalog XXE_install_dir/addon/config/catalog.xml silently fails. Therefore, the workaround is to start XXE in a directory which has not an UNC filename, for example: C:\.
In order to do this:
.dmgdistribution, the File|Open dialog box and the File|Folder pane do not display any of the files found in the Documents, Desktop and Downloads folders.
Workaround #1: strangely enough, there is no such problem when you start XXE from a terminal. That is,
$ applications_dir/XMLmind.app/Contents/Resources/xxe/bin/xxe &
.dmg distribution or
$ XXE_install_dir/bin/xxe &
This opens a file chooser dialog box.
/bin/sh" in this dialog box. The problem is that, by default, the file chooser dialog box will not show you folder "
First use the combobox to select the drive where macOS is installed. That is, first select the root folder.
/bin/sh" then click Open to grant shell scripts (of any kind, not only the shell script used to start XMLmind applications) full access to your files.
This procedure is done once for all.
No workaround. Seems to be a Java™ bug ([macosx] OpenFilesHandler does not receive fileopen events), unfortunately not fixed in Java 9+.
Workaround: on Linux computers, HiDPI is often not automatically detected. You'll have to use the "Display scaling" controls found in the General section of the Preferences dialog box.
Workaround: using an external application, update the contents of the system clipboard by copying to it (i.e. by using Ctrl-C) a small piece of text.
Workaround: the workaround to unblock XXE is to copy a piece of text to the clipboard using any application other than OpenOffice/LibreOffice.
Workaround: Java™ seems to be tested only against the Gnome and KDE standard window managers. Therefore, you unfortunately need to use another window manager.
