Updated Settings for Foxe xml.

As many of you are aware, our recommendation for xml viewers is Foxe xml (http://www.firstobject.com/dn_editor.htm). It’s a stable high performance xml editor with some nice features. The main reason to use it is for the ability to customize the tree nodes. Doing so allows you to identify specific nodes in a list without having to expand them.

Contact  Applied Software, Graitec Group to talk to a plant design expert about enhancing your plant projects.

For example, here’s the filter section of an isoconfig xml displayed in three different programs: XML Notepad, Notepad++, and Foxe.

As noted, the tree customization in Foxe allows us to see the rest of the nodes without expanding them. With the advent of Plant 3D 2023, we need that functionality less, but it still comes in handy for administrators.

To apply the customizations, first download the Foxe Settings text file below.

Then open up Foxe, and go to Tools (1), Preferences (2).

Tools > Preferences

Copy-paste the contents of the settings text file to the Tree Customizations box.

The file referenced in the download is the latest and greatest version.
