[oXygen-user] Open Big Files in read only with validation capabilities

As you noted you can open big files in read only mode in the large file 

If you add the file to the project then you have access to validation 
and transformation from the contextual menu (right click on Windows, 
CTRL+Click on Mac). However, an XSLT transformation may fail - probably 
the best approach is to take advantage that oXygen includes a Saxon-SA 
license) is to use the Saxon SA streaming support to process such files, 
for details see
and maybe also

Maybe using Saxon-SA streaming may help you to get an indented document?
