File Settings

XML Declaration


Specify the XML version to be used.


Select the XML file encoding. The following options are available:

  • UTF-8
  • UTF-16
  • ISO-8859-1 (Latin-1)

ImportantThe specified encoding will be used both in the XML declaration and when encoding the output file. When an XML file already exists and is being updated, the changes are made using the detected encoding from the target file, and not the one specified here.


When enabled the Standalone xml flag will be set to “Yes”, otherwise it will be “No”

TipA value of “No” indicates that this XML document is not standalone and depends on an externally-defined DTD. A value of “Yes” indicates that the XML document is self-contained.

ImportantThese settings are used only when the XML file is created from scratch.


Specify what type of characters should be used to indent the XML file and their number.

Caution!Note that the indent settings are used both when creating a file from scratch and when updating an existing file.
