hi steven, the xml produced leverages Gary Lapointe cmdlet for SharePoint. Depending on its support for SharePoint 2013 we'll see what we can do to provide a solution for SP2013.
We'll keep you posted on this
Can you give me a hint?
I installed it (1.0 and afterwards 1.2) in VS (2010 Ultimate), created an empty project (Visual C# / Windows / Empty Project), added the metadata item to the project, dropped TermStore etc icons to the metadata item canvas. As discribed on this site and also in the video. I repeated it many times.
But: In the popup menu (right-click on the TermStore symbol) the commands "Generate Office Documents" and "Export taxonomy to XML" are always disabled. Only "Import taxonomy from XML" is enabled.
Is there any reason why or when these options are disabled?
p.s.: Office 2010 32bit is also installed on Win2008 incl. Sp2010.
Nice to see you use our tool. According to me you are right clicking on the shape of the TermStore instead of right clicking within an empty space of the design surface.
Try it and let me know if it solve your issue.
Enjoy designing taxonomy.
Regarding the data ownership we prefer that each taxonomy got its own life cycle and instead of using the system provided by Sharepoint 2010 we promote to use the Free taxonomy Editor to define two complete structure. Of course within the word file you can duplicate (copy/paste) one structure into the other.
