If you downloaded the ZIP file I had uploaded in that thread, more or less follow the directions I gave Julie--reproduced below.
Mike Wenzloff Hi Julie. Try the ZIP file from dropbox I have put here. Just UnZip it someplace like your desktop or in a folder on you computer.
One way to use the XML and so it will be linked is to do a File | New | From Job Ticket. Navigate to the XML file, then select it. After that, changes to the XML are reflected live in the new file.
You can also just open the QXP file included, or even Append the styles from it to a new or existing document. The Span attributes are part of the styles definitions though there are no means of changing them in the UI.
Mike Wenzloff Oh. When you open the QXP, it will likely not have the text display properly--this is something Q will need to fix before Prime Time. If this happens (and it always does to me) then just grab one of the frame handles, move it slightly and move it back. It's enough to make the text display properly.
Also, do note that as Matthias wrote, it is an experimental feature--hence the redraw issue. It does work and doesn't hog resources in my testing, unlike with ID where too many spans can have a serious performance impact. Hopefully this will be a finished off feature in a future update.
