XMLmind XML Editor is a strictly validating, near WYSIWYG, XML editor, aimed at technical writers. Out of the box, it has extensive support for DocBook, DITA, XHTML and MathML. Because it is highly extensible, it may be also be used to create documents conforming to your own custom schema.

This Evaluation Edition is identical to Professional Edition except that:
  • Evaluation Edition ceases to function after 30 days.
  • Evaluation Edition has a "Convert Document" submenu. However the items of this submenu all generate output containing random duplicate
What's New
Version 5.9.0:

Enhancements:

  • Much improved DITA map and DITA bookmap configurations:
    • Improved CSS stylesheets. For example, the CSS stylesheets now render the title of the referenced topic when a topicref has no navtitle.
    • It's now possible to populate a map using drag and drop only. This works because dropping a file or URL onto a topicref displays a popup menu containing "Insert Topicref Before", "Insert Topicref Into", "Insert Topicref After" and "Edit Topicref".
    • New toolbar buttons:
      • "Edit Topicref": displays an easy-to-use dialog box allowing to change the href attribute and/or the navtitle of selected topicref.
      • "Show Level": displays a menu containing "Show Level 1", "Show Level 2", ..., "Show Level 9" items. "Show Level N" means: expand all the collapsible elements of the map up to nesting level N and recursively collapse all the collapsible elements having a nesting level greater than N.
    • Specific contextual menu containing the same items as the toolbar.
    • Several new mouse and keyboard actions: double-click on a topicref to open the referenced topic, press Down to select following topicref, press Enter to insert a topicref, etc.
  • The "Document Set" tool, which has been renamed to "Navigation Pane", is now more convenient to use:
    • When a document is opened in XXE, suffice to select "Tools|Open Navigation Pane" (keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift-N) and XXE will attempt to automatically determine which Navigation Pane should be opened at the left of the document area.
      The opened Navigation Pane displays the Table of Contents of the master document (map, assembly, modular document, etc) which references or includes the document being edited.
    • When you hover your mouse over an entry of the Table of Contents displayed by a Navigation Pane, a tooltip (also called "balloon help") shows you the URL of the corresponding document.
    • Opening a document or switching from one document to another will cause the Navigation Pane to highlight the corresponding entry in its Table of Contents.
  • It's now possible to move the text or node selection within a document using drag and drop. More precisely, in the general case, dropping some data into the document view, now displays a popup menu allowing to copy or move the data being dropped. More information in "Drag and drop in XMLmind XML Editor". If you want to give this new feature a try, please remember that, with XXE, you have to keep Alt pressed while dragging the selection.
  • CSS support: extension property tooltip-content allows to specify the textual contents of a tooltip (also called "balloon help" or "mouse hover"). This tooltip is displayed by XXE when the user moves the mouse over the view of the element which is the subject of the CSS rule containing tooltip-content. This extension property is now used in the XHTML and DocBook CSS stylesheets to display the target of internal and external links.
  • When you hover your mouse over an element name in the node path bar and the corresponding element has attributes, the tooltip (also called "balloon help") of the node path bar now shows you these attributes.
  • Added item "Show Element Reference" to the Help menu. This menu item opens in the Web browser the reference documentation of the explicitly or implicitly selected element. Note that this menu item is enabled only if a reference manual which is usable for this purpose (e.g. DocBook, DITA) is found on the Web.
  • DocBook, XHTML, DITA tables: resizing a table column by dragging a column separator now results in more precise proportional column widths.
  • The font list contained in the FOP and XEP preferences sheets (Options|Preferences, Add-on section, FOP and XEP sub-sections) now supports dropping one or more .ttf (TrueType Font) or .ttc (TrueType Font Collection) files.
    This change was needed because on Windows, for permissions reasons, there is no way to pick a font file from the "C:WindowsFonts" folder using the standard file chooser (whether the native or the Java™ one). Therefore the only way to register with Apache FOP or RenderX XEP a font found in "C:WindowsFonts" is to drag its file from the Windows file manager and to drop it onto the list.
  • Added support for "data:" URLs.
  • Added option [createDocument] to command XXE.new. This option allows to create a new document (just like File|New) without opening it in XXE just after creating it.
  • Added option "showLevelN" to command toggleCollapsed. This new option allows to expand all the collapsible views of the document up to nesting level N and to recursively collapse all the collapsible views having a nesting level greater than N. For example, invoking "toggleCollapsed showLevel 1" or "toggleCollapsed showLevel 2" just after opening a large DocBook document may be used to display the outline of this document (that is, the list of its collapsed parts or chapters).
  • CSS support: added options hide-when-disabled and show-level-menu to the collapser() pseudo-function.
    The show-level-menu option is used in the DocBook CSS stylesheets. Right-clicking on the collapse/expand button found in part, chapter, section, etc, titles, now displays a menu containing not only "Collapse All" and "Expand All" menu items, but also new "Show Level 1", "Show Level 2", ..., "Show Level 9" menu items. These new menu items invoke command "toggleCollapsed showLevel N" (see above).
  • CSS support: added options dimmed and word-wrap to the label() pseudo-function.
  • The convertdoc command-line utility has been replaced by xxetool. This new command-line utility has a documentation of its own: "The xxetool command-line utility".
  • Upgraded XMLmind DITA Converter (ditac for short) to version 2.5.1_01.
  • Upgraded the XMLmind XSL-FO Converter (XFC for short) plug-in to version 5.0.0.

there is no free personal edition anymore; the download link is dead, and when investigating on the site, it appears that only a 30-day demo version of the professional version exists now.

This Evaluation Edition is identical to Professional Edition except that:
  • Evaluation Edition ceases to function after 30 days.
  • Evaluation Edition has a "Convert Document" submenu. However the items of this submenu all generate output containing random duplicate letters (which make the output useless for any purpose other than evaluating XXE). Of course, this will not happen with Professional Edition.
