I have an xml file that I want to edit a bit. Problem is that it comes up largely, actually completely, as one very long line. Since it was generated by another app I’m reluctant to reformat it for my purposes.
Is it possible through a plug-in or some such to render this code as it appears in Firefox or IE? That is, indented and single lines per tag?
This is probably a duh and I did search but all I found were fairly esoteric Q&A.

You can use any command line tool, like “HTML Tidy” (http://tidy.sourceforge.net/)
Download, unpack (I have a sub folder “Tools” in my EmEditor folder)
and add a EmEditor Tool:
Tools > External Tools > Customize Tools > New
Title: HTML Tidy -xml
Arguments: -xml -i -q “$(Path)”
[X] Use Output Bar
Output: Replace Document
(Currently I don’t know how to just replace the document without opening the output bar ???)
Open your file. run the new tool, close Output bar, done.

Thanks. I found a macro that does it quite nicely: XMLFormatter.jsee

For anyone else who finds this, if you copy and paste Stefan’s settings be sure you replace the HTML quotes with normal quotes!November 10, 2018 at 6:53 pm #23955
I’m a noob and can’t seem to get this to work. I could use some help getting tidy to work.
