GraphML files treated as regular XML file during open.

0 votes


I have recently started having problems opening .graphml files created by yEd. When I open any .graphm file, it comes up with the "XML Input" dialog, where it asks me for the XSLT stylesheet to apply. It happens with all of my .graphml files, including the smiple test at http://pastebin.com/ZBytfSMF.

This happens for me on yEd 3.6.1, 3.8 and 3.9. I am running it on Ubuntu, and it happens using both the following versions of java:

# java -version
# java version "1.6.0_23"
# OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.11pre) (6b23~pre11-0ubuntu1.11.10.2)


# java -version
# java version "1.6.0_26"
# Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_26-b03)

Do you have any tips on how I can go about debugging this? There is no output from the console when I open the file to go on.

No matter, I got it working by deleting my ~/.yEd directory. Thanks http://yed.yworks.com/support/qa/329/installed-on-lion-and-cant-open-files-or-start-with-blank-one
