Open a topic with a specified editor

Use this procedure to edit a topic with an editor other than the default XML editor.

You can have several different files open in different editors at the same time in the editor area. To switch from one topic to another, click the tab with the topic title; your file will appear in the editor with which you opened it.

Use Open With when you have more than one editor associated with the .xml file extension.

This function is available from all DITA CMS views.

To open a topic with a specified editor:

  • Right-click the topic.
  • Select Open With, then select the editor from the menu list.
    The topic opens in the selected XML editor.
