Copy XML of a AuthorNode

we are using the Eclipse Oxygen Author in Version 16.

In the Context Menu of the Oxygen Author you are able to paste certain text from the clipboard as XML.
I would appreciate, if this would also work the other way round, so that you could also copy the complete xml of a "fullySelectedAuthorNode".

In detail I currently have the case that I want to get the whole XML as text of an AuthorElement.
I have not found a convenience method for that or am I really forced to generate the XML as text with a StringBuilder manually by navigating through the AuthorElement and its child elements?

Best regards,

Hi Simon,

You could use the API:

AuthorDocumentController.createDocumentFragment(AuthorNode node, boolean copyContent)

and then serialize the fragment using:

AuthorDocumentController.serializeFragmentToXML(AuthorDocumentFragment fragment)
