Symptoms

When a schema has multiple imports that contain the same namespace, and the first import includes any other schemas, if a referenced element is not defined in the first import, the element reference is not resolved.

Also, element types that are defined in imports do not appear under the Data Structure Type property.

Cause

This problem occurs because the search for each element reference occurs only for the first import and for the hierarchy of the first import.
