At my last job I downloaded an xml editor that worked really well to make changes to Feature Class attribute schemas. By exporting the "schema only" in arc catalog I got the xml file and open it in the editor.
The editor would display the xml as a series of folders which makes inserting a new field a snap. I thought it was notepad ++ but I just downloaded it here at my new job and it's only displaying a traditional xml <tags> type of format.
Does anyone know which xml editor I'm describing here?
Thanks Dana- I too have struggled with x-ray, so I know it wasn't that.
eta moments later: Microsoft XML Notepad. available here: Download XML Notepad 2007 from Official Microsoft Download Center
Here is a shot of an ArcGIS/ArcCatalog generated xml file of a table. I need to add a few fields. Lets say I needed to add a new field above the field called NAME. I just insert a new folder where I want it, call it what I want it, define it like I want, save it, import it back into ArcGIS and I'm good to go....
