[oXygen-user] [ANN] oXygen XML Editor 7.0 beta
Thu Jan 5 09:18:10 CST 2006
the Beta is just another continuously improved Release of oXygen.
I like all the new features but there are also a few things i really miss:
* Sorting of tabs for similar file types (configurable):
It would be cool to have oXygen sort newly opened files as of specific
(or standard) rules you can define. So if you are editing a bunch of
it automatically. An alternative scenario would be to group them instead
of sorting. Lets say oXygen shows XML and XSL files in the upper
* Collapsing views
The dockable views are a killer-feature and so far not seen by any other
editor i used for this spectrum of technologies. But what could be
really helpful is a way to collapse those views. So in case of three
vertically splitted views you could expand on of theses to edit. Then
you will switch to another view just by pressing a button. Combined with
the above mentioned sorting of tabs people could structure there
workflow a lot more.
* Customizing formatting of non-XML files
Formatting a XML-native file is already implemented and due to the fact
of the nature of XML there is little difficulty about
(re)pretty-printing such a document.
Is there a possibility to customize this behaviour? In my case i really
don't like oXygens way to strip blank lines between class declarations
or to strip the whitespace between a property and value (display:none)
on auto-completion simply because the syntax highlight does not
recognize this as expected.
Keep up the good work
