Document Type Configuration Dialog Box

The Document Type Configuration dialog box allows you to create or edit a framework (document type). It is displayed when you use the New, Edit, Duplicate, or Extend buttons in the Document Type Association preferences page (open the Preferences dialog box and go to Document Type Association).

The configuration dialog box includes the following fields and sections:
  • Name - The name of the framework. This will be displayed as its name in the Document Type column in the Document Type Association preferences page.
  • Priority - Depending on the priority level, Oxygen XML Author plugin establishes the order in which the existing frameworks are evaluated to determine the type of a document you are opening. It can be one of the following: Lowest, Low, Normal, High, or Highest. You can set a higher priority to frameworks you want to be evaluated first.
  • Description - A detailed description of the framework.
  • Storage - Displays the type of location where the framework configuration file is stored. Can be one of: External (framework configuration is saved in a file) or Internal (framework configuration is stored in the application's internal options).
    Note: If you set the Storage to Internal and the framework configuration is already stored in a framework file, the file content is saved in the application's internal options and the file is removed.
  • Initial edit mode - Sets the default edit mode when you open a document for the first time.

  • Configuration Tabs - The bottom section of the dialog box includes various tabs where you can configure numerous options for the framework.
