XML Copy Editor is an XML editor focusing on editing document markup languages like DITA, DocBook, WordprocessingML. XML Copy Editor is an application designed to be a fast, no frills XML editor with DTD/XML Schema/RELAX NG validation, XSLT, XPath, pretty-printing, syntax highlighting, folding and tag completion. If Microsoft Word is installed on your computer, you can import and export Microsoft Word documents without loss of content or formatting.
The interface is plain and simple, presenting a few shortcut buttons for quick access to the most important actions, a panel in which to open files, a few smaller ones that let you insert a new element, sibling or entity, as well as a list for viewing all the built-in ones. The interface is also a bit customizable, seeing that text size can be controlled and there are a few color schemes to choose from.
XML Copy Editor is a useful piece of software that helps you edit and check XML files and to create your own elements. There is an array of options available and CPU and memory usage is low. XML can be used for a myriad of purposes, including serializing data, like YAML and JSON languages do. The spelling and style check supports inclusive language, harmonizes preferred spellings and converts documents from Commonwealth to American spelling (and vice versa).
Some of the features this incredible program includes are: DTD/XML Schema/RELAX NG validation, XSLT, XPath, pretty-printing, syntax highlighting, folding, tag completion/locking and lossless import/export of Microsoft Word documents. There are multiple types of encoding methods available (UTF, ISO, US), while people can lock tags, use a word counter, check their spelling and their style (Disability, Ize, Hyphenation, Gender, White Space etc.). What is more, the application features a very simple and intuitive user interface made up of a new XML document and four small toolboxes, from which you can easily insert new elements, siblings (XML elements with the same parent) and entities (special characters like &, > or “). Thanks to its Folding Feature now you can fold entire blocks of code, something very useful for large documents. It also includes a nice printing feature which will wrap long lines and highlight code elements according to your current document type, making this task more fun and faster.
This software tool supports import and export from formats such as XML, HTML, DTD, RNG, XSL and DOC, and integrates a small search tool that enables you to find items by inputting keywords with two options: match case and regular expression.
