I have 3 XText based editors.

DSL Editor1 has the following contents :

A = B

Here, A is referred from Editor2 and B is refered from Editor3.

But, I get error 'feature 'A' contains a dangling refrence'

I also get messages in Console which looks something like this:
org.eclipse.xtext.resource.impl.DefaultResourceDescriptionStrategy ERROR - Reference from platform:/xxxxxxx cannot be exported as the target is not contained in a resource.

I dont understand how to fix the issue and is the actual cause for the issue.
Can anybody provide suggestions?

Thanks in advance Smile

it would be interesting to know about your customizations in nameprovider, resourcedescriptionsstrategy and scoping and linking
looks like you have some references to objects that do not belong to a resoure.

Need professional support for Xtext, Xpand, EMF?
