Tim CrewsSubject: Can't query .xsd file

I am using an evaluation version of the Stylus Studio Home edition.

As I am writing the stylesheet, it would be handy if I could open the input schema file, and run XPath queries on it to experiment with queries I might want to include in my XSTL stylesheet.

Unfortunately, the "Show XPath Query Editor" toolbar button is disabled when I view the .XSD file.

The help file topic "Querying XML Documents Using XPath" in Chapter 2 says that "you can also query XML Schema and XSLT, provided you open the XSLT using the XML Editor."

I have tried opening the .XSD file using the XML editor. I choose File...Open, select the .xsd file, and then click the drop-down on the Open button, and select "XML Editor". Even so, the schema editor opens instead of the normal XML editor. Apparently, the schema editor does not allow for XPath Querying.

Is that a bug, or a feature?

The XPath Query Editor is only available in Enterprise and Professional Edition as stated at the beginning of the chapter "Using the XPath Query Editor"


Hope this helps

Ah, I see that now. I also see the lack of Query support in the feature comparison matrix. Sorry I missed that. Thank you for your response.
