Drag and Drop Actions in Outline View
Entire XML elements can be moved or copied in the edited document using only the mouse in the
Outline view with drag-and-drop operations. Several drag and drop
actions are possible:
- If you drag an XML element in the Outline view and drop it on
another one in the same panel then the dragged element will be moved after the drop target
- If you hold the mouse pointer over the drop target for a short time before the drop then
the drop target element will be expanded first and the dragged element will be moved inside
the drop target element after its opening tag.
- You can also drop an element before or after another element if you hold the mouse pointer
towards the upper or lower part of the targeted element. A marker will indicate whether the
drop will be performed before or after the target element.
- If you hold down the (Ctrl (Command on OS X))
key after dragging, there will be performed a copy operation instead of a move one.
The drag and drop action in the Outline view can be disabled and enabled from a Preferences page.
