Project 

The Macro Editor facilitates editing of DELT/A Macro Files. Due to their structure they are difficult to handle in a normal XML Editor. The Macro Editor presents the different parts of a Macro File in their own windows. Context menus and miscellanous features simplify creating macros and macro-references. Furthermore, a DTD can be selected. Thus only allowed elements can be inserted.


Some Features:
  • Better Overview
  • Context Menues
  • DTD Support (using XGA)
  • Macro Import
