Install on Mac OS X 10.4+


To install XLingPaper on Mac OS X operating systems (Intel processor, version 10.4 or higher), do these steps:

Download and install the XMLmind XML Editor (~29MB).

  1. If you are able to use the Personal Edition, see below.  Otherwise, please email sales at xmlmind and ask them how to purchase a professional license for version 5.3.0 of the XMLmind XML Editor that will run on Mac OS X. (XLingPaper needs version 5.3.0 of the XMLmind XML Editor; unfortunately, newer versions have some incompatibilities with the XLingPaper configuration files.) They should be able to give you a link where you can download the installer for version 5.3.0. Get this installer.
    1. If you are using OS X version 10.4 (Tiger) to 10.10 (Yosemite), click here.
    2. If you are using OS X version 10.11 (El Capitan), you will need to download and install Java version 6 by going to  Then get the XMLmind XML Editor version that works with El Capitan by clicking here.
  2. Double-click the .dmg file after it downloads. This will open a Finder window showing the contents of the downloaded .dmg file.
  3. Drag the XMLEditor item (i.e. the program, not the folder) to /Applications.

Download and install the XLingPaper configuration package (~61MB).

  1. Click here to download the latest XLingPaper configuration installer for Mac OS X.
  2. Run the installer. It will do all that is needed. Be sure to use the default installation directory.  As its last step, it will start up the XMLmind XML Editor with a sample XLingPaper document in it.  You can then “play” with this sample document.

Note: if you get a message about “can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer”, try right-clicking on the icon and choosing Open and then click on Open. See

That’s it.  You are now set to use XLingPaper.

Please note that if you are running El Capitan and have already installed XLingPaper, you will get an error message if you try and run this installer again. Please use an update package instead. See

If you run into any problems, please contact

  1. I succeeded in installing the XMLmind XML Editor. I can open it and use it. But when I try to initiate installation of XML LingPaper, the installer appears but is covered by a notification that says “Missing XMLmind XML Editor!” underneath which it states, “I cannot find the XMLmind XML Editor. Please install it before trying to install XLingPaper. See and download the appropriate version for you.”

    And yet, the program XMLmind XML Editor is clearly visible to me in my Applications folder and I can easily run it.

    My OS is Mavericks.

    • Never mind! Seems like the installer just couldn’t follow the folder trail to the application. All I had to do was pull the actual app XMLmind XML Editor out of the folder it was in inside Applications and set it beside the folder and the installer was able to find just fine. 🙂

  2. After installing both components one after the other, XMLEditor opens automatically and I get the following failure notice:
    Cannot load document
    /Users/eliese/Documents/MY_XLingPaper/XLingPAP.dtd (No such file or directory)

    What can I do? The document is in place, XMLEditor is in the applications folder as is the XLingPaper folder.

    Thank you!

    • Eliese:

      I’m not sure what the problem is. I’ll contact you via email.


      • It turned out to be a typo in part of the installation script. The fixed installers are now available. I’ll give you detailed instructions on what to do via email. My apologies for not having caught this error before.
