Avoid Formatting Issues when Pasting Markdown

April 3, 2024
Oxygen XML Editor 26.1 makes it easier to paste Markdown content into documents without having to manually convert the formatting.

Oxygen XML Editor is a cross-platform XML editor that provides a comprehensive suite of tools for XML authoring and development. It is designed for users of all levels of experience, and includes support for all aspects of XML development, including editing, validating, generating output, debugging, and managing XML projects. Its wide feature set includes XML schema editing, graphical XML document browser, syntax highlighting, context-aware code completion, and powerful search and replace functionality.

The Oxygen XML Editor 26.1 release streamlines the workflow for content authors who utilize Markdown. Pasting Markdown content (a widely used plain text formatting language) into DITA, DocBook, TEI, or XHTML documents in Author mode could previously result in formatting inconsistencies. This new smart paste functionality automatically converts pasted Markdown into the target document's format, mirroring its behavior with web pages and Microsoft Word documents. By automating this conversion, Oxygen XML Editor eliminates the need for manual reformatting after each Markdown paste, saving authors significant time and effort.
