Newly added frameworks appear at bottom of list, should appe

Hi there, When I have my users install a new framework by downloading it and unzipping it into the frameworks dir, the new framework is appended to the list of Document Types as the last item. If my new framework is a customization of an existing framework (perhaps with a CustomRuleMatcher), this me...

Re: Move rows and columns in a table with buttons

Ok, glad it's on the roadmap.

A similar feature would be an easy way to move list item like things (in DocBook listitems, steps, varlistentrys, members, etc) up and down.

Move rows and columns in a table with buttons

Hi there, One feature that seems to be missing from Oxygen's cals and html table support are buttons to move rows up and down and columns left and right. I know spans would be a problem, but I assume the script would just refuse to move the row if it hits a span. Is there already a convenience featu...

Re: Display less detail in the Outline view

Yes, it works ok, but requires a little creativity and is not as easy to explain to new writers as I would like. I think there's still a feature request/unsatisfied user story lurking in here. The current Outline View is of limited value for a number of reasons: you can't limit what is displayed to ...

Re: Display less detail in the Outline view

Hi there, Is there anyway to suppress certain elements in the outline view to reduce the amount of noise? For example, I might like to suppress all <indexterm> and <para> elements.

Auto save on window change

Hi there,
A user has requested that Oxygen be made to automatically save the file(s) when you switch from Oxygen to another application (apparently this is the way IntelliJ behaves). It would be fine if this were a configurable thing.

Re: Reloading operations in classpath

As far as I can tell, quitting and restarting Oxygen is the only way to pick up a changed class (quitting the docs doesn't do it). It does seem to notice a newly added class however.
