You can configure Oxygen XML Editor options using the Preferences dialog box.

To open the preferences dialog box, go to Options > Preferences.

You can select the preference page you are interested in from the tree on the left of the Preferences dialog box. You can filter the tree by using the filter text box and the following buttons are available to the right of the text box:
  • Expand All - Expands the structure of the tree to show all preference pages.
  • Collapse All - Collapses the structure of the tree to show only the 1st level preference pages.
  • Project-Level Options Only - If toggled on, it filters the tree to only show the preference pages that are saved at project level.
