Add the root-catalog.xml catalog to the Oxygen XML Editor

For IXIASOFT CCMS to locate the DTDs for the DITA objects and elements in your documentation, you must add the root-catalog.xml file to the Oxygen XML Editor.

The root-catalog.xml dynamically points to the master-catalog.xml catalog file, which contains the list of all the catalogs used by IXIASOFT CCMS Desktop. If you add a new catalog to the system, make sure to add it to the master-catalog.xml catalog file as described in the Integrating DTDs into IXIASOFT CCMS document.

    The Preferences dialog opens.
