The Open / Save preferences panel is opened from menu Options > Preferences > Editor > Open / Save.
The following options are available:
When text from BIDI Unicode range is detected - Allows you to
choose the application behavior when you try to open a file that contains BIDI Unicode
characters. You can choose between Enable bidirectional editing mode,
Disable bidirectional editing mode and Prompt for each
Disable bidirectional support
for documents larger than (Characters) - When you try to open a document that
exceeds the specified limit, the bidirectional editing mode is turned off, even if the
When text from BIDI Unicode range is detected option is set to
Enable bidirectional editing mode.
Safe save (only for local files) - Option that provides an
increased degree of protection in the unlikely event of a failure of the
Save action. This mechanism creates a temporary file that holds the
edited content until it is safely saved in the original file. If the
Save action fails, the temporary file is kept in the system
temporary folder, OxygenXMLTemp subfolder.
Make backup copy on save (only for local
files) - If enabled, a backup copy is made when saving the edited document.
This option is available only for local files (files that are stored on the local file
system). The default backup file extension is .bak, but you can change
it as you prefer.
Enable automatic save - When
enabled, your document are saved automatically after a preset time interval.
Automatic save interval (minutes)
- Selects the interval in minutes between two automatic save actions.
Save all files before transformation or validation - Saves all
open files before validating or transforming an XML document. This way the dependencies are
resolved, for example when modifying both the XML document and its XML Schema.
Check errors on save - If
enabled, Oxygen XML Editor checks your
document for errors before saving it.
Save all files before calling external
tools - If enabled, all files are saved before executing an external
Optimize loading in the Text edit mode for
files over (MB) - File loading is optimized for reduced memory usage for any
file with a size larger than this value. This optimization is useful for being able to load
and edit very large files, but it comes with several restrictions
for memory-intensive operations.
Show warning when loading large
documents - A warning dialog is displayed when you try to load a very large
Optimize loading for documents with lines
longer than (Characters) - Line wrap is turned on for a document containing
lines that exceed the length specified with this option. For a list of the restrictions
applied to a document with long lines, see the Editing
Documents with Long Lines section.
Show warning when loading documents with long
lines - If enabled, a warning dialog is displayed when you try to open a file
that contains at least one line that exceeds the maximum line length specified in the
previous option. The warning dialog informs you that line wrapping is turned on and some of
the editing features are disabled. Another option is to format and indent the document after it is opened in the editor
panel. For a list of the restrictions applied to a document with long lines, see the section
documents with long lines.
Clear undo buffer on save - If enabled, Oxygen XML Editor erases its undo stack
when you save a document. Only modifications made after you have saved the document can be
undone. Check this option if you encounter frequent out of memory problems
(OutOfMemoryError) when editing very large documents.
Consider application bundles to be
directories when browsing - This option is available only on the Mac OS X
platform. When checked, the file browser dialog allows browsing inside an application bundle
as in a regular folder. When unchecked, the file browser dialog does not allow browsing
inside an application bundle, as the Finder application does on Mac OS X. The same effect
can be obtained by setting the property
apple.awt.use-file-dialog-packages to true or
false in the Info.plist descriptor file of the Oxygen XML Editor application:
