I have installed EMF and EMFTEXT for an academic research issue on product lines. Now the editor has been generated with basic fonctionnalities like write, delete, copy/paste... I want to improve those fonctionnalities as an IDE one.

So, my question is where should i work to to do that? I don't really know where the EDITOR code is packed and which strucuture it has.

Is there a good documantation on EMF Editor customization? All i found mainly explian basic concepts like Ecore, GenModel, editor generation. But what is the next step after generating editor?

Hope you understand what i am trying to ask, English is not my first language. Sorry for all mistakes!

EMFtext is not an Eclipse Foundation project. You should contact

If you require a comparable Eclipse Foundation project try Xtext.

The many example languages provide good ways to learn.

This might be interesting for you, if you want to have a more powerful and more extensible editor:
