The Oxygen XML Editor Author mode includes support for dragging and dropping content in XML documents.

When editing content in Author mode, entire sections or chunks of data can be moved or copied by using the drag and drop feature. The following situations can be encountered:

  • When both of the drag and drop sources are from the Author mode editor, a well-formed XML fragment is transferred. The section is balanced before dropping it by adding matching tags when needed.
  • When the drag source is from the Author mode editor but the drop target is a text-based editor, only the text inside the selection is transferred as it is.
  • The text dropped from another text editor or another application into the Author mode editor is inserted without changes.
