Master Files Support

Oxygen XML Author allows you to define Master Files at project level. These master files are automatically used by Oxygen XML Author to determine the context for operations such as validation, content completion, refactoring, or searches for XML modules. Oxygen XML Author maintains the hierarchy of the master files, helping you to determine the editing context.

Oxygen XML Author also provides unique support for using the Master Files support in DITA projects. In DITA, when you rename or move non-DITA resources, it allows you to update all the references to these resources in the scope of the Master Files (in this case the main DITA map (root map)). For more information, see Master Files Support in DITA.
