XML editor

Is there an app that can edit the XML lists and attributes? I can never save them back in the correct way.

To add a field in every game entry? I don't think I can replace text when a return is involved.

I tried hitting shift+enter but I couldn't make the line longer.

I'm so happy to use Linux at times. 😀 Joe has no issues with multiline expression based search/replace.

I have had that problem for most of the year, but Ive found a good enough solution on Windows. Surprisingly, MS Office Excel 2003 and later versions support editing XML better than ever many Visual Studio editions. If you already have Excel on your computer give it a try. You can open the XML and edit it easily. In 2003, the only problem is adding new fields, which should be added on Notepad before opening on Excel. Once the XML is edited as an Excel sheet, you can filter, replace, etc, easily  ;)

If you give notepad++ another go you can use regular expression in conjunction with the text replacement to replace returns and all sorts of things. I think to replace returns its either /n or /r.
