Copy as XML feature

Thu Sep 18, 2014 5:28 pm

I'd like to be able to copy an element in Author view as XML, so that when I paste it elsewhere I get the full XML output, not plain text.

I realize one can copy from Text view. However, in Text view I can't select items by element. In Author view I can select a whole section or chapter element and then paste it.

Thanks for the improvement request, I registered it into our system. As a workaround we have plenty of Java-based API which would allow you to implement your own custom "Copy as XML" operation and place it in the contextual menu, so if you are interested I could try to give you more details about this.
Also as a hint in the Text editing mode you can triple click an element's tag to select the entire element or use the Outline.
