A set of options controls the behavior of Oxygen XML Editor, allowing you to configure most of the features. To offer you the highest degree of flexibility in customizing the application to fit the needs of your organization, Oxygen XML Editor includes several distinct layers of option values.

Figure: Option Lookup Priority

The option layers are as follows (sorted from high priority to low):
  • Project Options

    Allows project managers to establish a set of rules for a specific project. These rules standardize the information exchanged by the team members (for example, if the project is stored in a repository, a common set of formatting rules avoid conflicts that may appear when documents modified by various team members are committed to the repository).

  • Global Options

    Allows individual users to personalize Oxygen XML Editor according to their specific needs.

  • Customized Default Options
    Designed to customize the initial option values for a group of users, this layer allows an administrator to deploy the application preconfigured with a standardized set of option values.
    Note: Once this layer is set, it represents the initial state of Oxygen XML Editor when an end-user uses the Restore defaults or Reset Global Options actions.
  • Default Options

    The predefined default or built-in values, tuned so that Oxygen XML Editor behaves optimally in most working environments.

Important: If you set a specific option in one of the layers, but it is not applied in the application, make sure that one of the higher priority layers does not overwrite it.
