The Document Type Configuration dialog box allows you to create or edit a framework (document type). It is displayed when you use the New, Edit, Duplicate, or Extend buttons in the Document Type Association preferences page (open the Preferences dialog box (Options > Preferences) and go to Document Type Association).

Figure 1. Document Type Configuration Dialog Box

The configuration dialog box includes the following fields and sections:

The name of the framework. This will be displayed as its name in the Document Type column in the Document Type Association preferences page.
Depending on the priority level, Oxygen XML Editor establishes the order that the existing frameworks are evaluated to determine the type of a document you are opening. It can be one of the following: Lowest, Low, Normal, High, or Highest. You can set a higher priority for frameworks you want to be evaluated first.
Note: The built-in document types are set to Low priority by default. Frameworks that have the same priority are sorted alphabetically.
The document type description displayed as a tooltip in the Document Type Association preferences page.
The location where the framework is saved. If you select the External storage option, the framework is saved in a specified file with a mandatory extension (located in a subdirectory of your current framework directory. If you select the Internal storage option, the framework configuration data is saved in the Oxygen XML Editor internal options file (if Global Options is selected) or in the current Oxygen XML Editor project xpr file (if Project Options is selected).
Initial edit mode
Sets the default edit mode when you open a document for the first time: Editor specific, Text, Author, Grid and Design (available only for the W3C XML Schema editor). If the Editor specific option is selected, the initial editing mode is determined based upon the editor type. You can find the mapping between editors and edit modes in the Edit modes preferences page. You can impose an initial mode for opening files that match the association rules of the document type. For example, if the files are usually edited in the Author mode you can set it in the Initial edit mode combo box.
Note: You can also customize the initial mode for a document type in the Edit modes preferences page. Open the Preferences dialog box (Options > Preferences) and go to Editor > Edit modes.
Configuration Tabs
The bottom section of the dialog box includes various tabs where you can configure numerous options for the framework.
