(Deleted User) Subject: Showing of ComplexTypes on Diagrams
Author: (Deleted User)
Date: 16 Jul 2007 08:29 AM
When you are editing schemas that heavily use complextypes the diagrams quickly get out of control. This is because you have included the complex types as nodes in the diagram rather than annotating the relevant element as being of that type.

The request I would like is to be able to view complexTypes either as nodes or hide them an have the relevant elements have the definition associated with them. I find it confusing that the attribute definitions are shown on the complex type and not the element that is of that type as it is not clear without generating examples as to what the final structure would be. I have to say upto until recently I have never used Stylus for schema editing as I found that XMLSpy seemed to have clearer diagrams and an easier paradigm for editing schemas. For all other operations I have used Stylus especially for XSLT work. So I would like to get the schema editing in stylus to be less cluttered and more intuitive (which I realise is subjective).
