I have a schema where I import another namespace. That seems to work fine but XMLSpy always prompts me for the root node when I generate the XML.

Is there something I can do to force the root node?

Thanks!

If you are generating an XML (or starting to autor one) XML SPy can't possibly know which element you consider the root. Each globaly declared element can be the root. You could have named groups or named types instead of global element declarations to overcome that, but that requires changing the schema. If you don't want to change the schema, the options remain. Maybe you can set an edit scenario in XML spy for a particular XML schema... in Oxygen you can
