Hi,

I was looking for a way to export the documentation for an extension point
as HTML for publication on our web site.
I couldn't find a better solution than configuring an external web browser,
opening the documentation from the extension point editor and using
save as from the browser.

Am I missing some shortcut, or would that make a useful RFE?
I was thinking of a tiny little export wizard, sort of.
Perhaps even an option in the export plug-in wizard would suffice,
but a new wizard seems more to the point..

Stephan

I guess you can use pde.convertSchemaToHTML ant task to achieve this if you are doing a headless
build. From UI I don;t see any easier workaround than the one you are already using.

Sure file an RFE and lets see if get others interested too.
