Refactor only a portion of a file?

Post by LaRae_Chasteen » Tue Apr 09, 2019 9:17 pm

Good day,
Is there any way to perform one of the built-in refactoring operations, but only on selected text within the open file?
Thank you,
LaRae Chasteen

Dear LaRae,

Unfortunately the XML refactor can only be applied on entire documents, not on selected content. I added an internal issue with your feedback and if we ever implement this I will update the forum thread. In the meantime you will probably need to use the "Find/Replace" dialog which works on a selection. Or extract the selected content to a separate file and apply the refactoring operation there (but the selected content needs to be wellformed XML).

Regards,
Radu
