[oXygen-user] How to edit multiple XIncludes inline

Hi David,

The spell checker also works in xi:included areas but indeed words which 
are incorrect cannot be replaced on the spot, the target file needs to 
be opened using the "CTRL+R 'Edit Reference'" trick David Cramer suggested.

The current behavior is that only the current opened file's content can 
be edited and saved.

It would be quite complicated for Oxygen to allow in-place editing of 
such areas.
XI:Included documents can also recursively xi:include other content and 
can also be specified using xpointer schemes.
The behavior of the "Save" operation is very clear now, only the current 
edited file is saved, if the improvement would be made it would mean 
that multiple files would need to be saved when the user saves.
The 'Edit Reference' tries to find that target but a solution for "save" 
would need to be 100% accurate in finding the target content which needs 
to be modified, or else it would lead to corrupt XML documents.

But depending on the user feedback we'll get for this one, we might try 
to approach this in a future version.
