Author Editing Mode

The Author editing mode in Oxygen XML Author allows you to visually edit XML documents in a user-friendly interface that is similar to a WYSIWYG word processor. Oxygen XML Author provides support for visually editing the most commonly used XML vocabularies in Author mode, including DITA, DocBook, TEI, and XHTML. Adding text content is as simple as doing so in a standard text editor but the content is rendered similar to how you will see it in the output. Tables, images, and media objects (such as videos) are also rendered comparable to the output.

To switch to this mode, click the Author button at the bottom of the editing area.
