Editor Preferences

Oxygen XML Author plugin lets you configure the appearance of various components and features of the main editor. To access these options, open the Preferences dialog box and go to Editor ( or right-click in the editor window and choose Preferences).

The following options are available:
Editor background
Allows you to set the background color for text editors.
Completion proposal background
Allows you to set the background color of the Content Completion Assistant.
Completion proposal foreground
Allows you to set the color of the text in the Content Completion Assistant.
Documentation window background
Allows you to set the background color of the documentation of elements suggested by the Content Completion Assistant.
Documentation window foreground
Allows you to set the color of the text for the documentation of elements suggested by the Content Completion Assistant.
Line wrap
If selected, long lines are automatically wrapped in edited documents. The line wrap does not alter the document content since the application does not use new-line characters to break long lines.
Enable folding when opening a new editor
If selected (default value), the vertical stripe that holds the folding markers is displayed in Text mode.
Beep on operation finished
Oxygen XML Author plugin emits a short beep when a validation, check well-formedness, or transformation action has ended.
Note: When the validation or the transformation process of a document is successful, the beep signal has a higher audio frequency, as opposed to when the validation fails, and the beep signal has a lower audio frequency. On the Windows platform, for other operations, the default system sound (Asterisk) is used. You can configure it by changing the sound theme.
Display quick-assist and quick-fix side hints
Displays the Quick Assist icon () and Quick Fix icon () in the line number stripe on the left side of the editor.
Highlight matching tag
If you place the cursor on a start or end tag, Oxygen XML Author plugin highlights the corresponding member of the pair.
Tip: You can configure the colors and how various types of highlights are shown from the Eclipse Annotations preferences page (Window ('Eclipse' on Mac OSX) > Preferences > General > Editors > Text Editors > Annotations).
Minimum fold range
You can specify the minimum number of lines in a block for which the folding support becomes active. If you modify this value, the change takes effect next time you open the editor.
