I recently upgraded from InDesign CS 5.5 to InDesign CC. In CS 5.5, I was able to use an XSLT when importing XML for a publication. However, in CC, when I try to import the XML with the XSLT nothing happens. I don’t get an error message, but nothing is imported. It just remains a blank document. (The XSLT worked great in CS 5.5)
Has anyone else had this issue? Is there anything new in CC that I should be aware of when using XSLT? Has anything changed between versions for how InDesign processes XML or XSLT?
I just tried using an XSLT when importing XML in InDesign CC, and it seems to work OK for me. Have you tried that particular combination of XML and XSLT in another application?
I used the same combination of XSLT and XML in InDesign 5.5 and I've used it in various XSLT testing tools online; both worked great.
I ended up re-writing the XSLT to make the conditional statements more robust. The new XSLT is working great. I'm still not sure what was happening with the old version, but perhaps there was an upgrade to the way InDesign parses XSLT.
Thanks for your response.
