problem looking at XML data in Toad 10.1


#1

I have some tables with XML data. In toad 9.7 when I double click on the XML
data I get the XML popup editor. In Toad 10.1 it brings up what looks like the
TEXT popup editor. This is causing some problems.


#2

Set your toad options for external xml editor – as was mentioned in the
beta group – did away with toad’s xml editor to allow people to use
better alternatives J


#3

Does this mean we have to buy an external XML EDITOR?

Since the best one on earth is free (XML Spy from Altova) – Nope J

No more XML editor in Toad with v10.

In the options you can specify a 3rd party XML editor on the Executables page.

I’m using a free one called XML Marker.

This change was done due to Unicode requirements and is detailed in the Release
Notes.

You may want to keep a copy of 9.7 around if you want to use Toad to edit
existing XML data using an XML editor.

XML Spy is free? Looks like you have to pay after a 30 day trial to me. Am I missing something?

They used to offer free version of XML Spy – it seems they now offer
something for free that’s bigger & better – a community version
of their Enterprise product:

If you don’t mind Microsoft .Net – here’s a freebie that might
work well:

And for those who want a true binary EXE file – this one has decent
reviews:
