I have no access to news. Are there any other recommended
mechanisms for communication?
I will enter the bug.
Please use the newsgroup rather than the mailing list
for user questions in the future:
can use this link to open a bugzilla:
not sure if the right component is wst.xsd or wst.xml.
Thanks for the input.
1) I've tried every permutation of the preferences I can
think of in that section. My understanding is that is the only area that
controls XML formatting. Is this correct?
2) Where do I open the bug?
This sounds like the
XSD editor from the WTP project. (I know ... it's very confusing!).
I'd suggest you open a bug with
all these points (in 'webtools', xsd component) and the developers can address
I know there was a bug on
the first item in your list, and I _think_ fixed in maintenance (but not
sure). Not sure about the rest. They may have been intentional "fixes" but
perhaps more user formatting options are needed? But do be sure to check the
preferences under XML formatting ... I do know some new ones were added, but
don't recall off the top of my head if they'd impact these items.
My team recently started using Ganymede
fairly heavily, and we have discovered some very odd behavior when using the
XML schema formatting functions as compared to Europa:
1) Blank lines are always removed, regardless of the XML
2) Selecting "Split multiple
attributes..." now splits the line even if there is only one attribute
("<xsd:minLength value="5" />" is split to multiple lines)
3) Documentation is no longer formatted - the
xsd:documentation tags are not indented correctly, and the text is not
auto-wrapped to conform to the configured line width
4) Converting from "indent with spaces" to "indent with
tabs" generates some very odd-looking formatting (open and close tags no
longer at the same indent level)
From a consistency perspective, we find it very
difficult to use the built-in formatting as it is so different from the
previous version. Were these planned changes, or is there something obvious we
