The XSLT editor WYSIWYG tab is available only in Stylus Studio XML Enterprise Suite and Stylus Studio XML Professional Suite.

The WYSIWYG tab is available in the XSLT editor. Use this tab when the stylesheet you are developing generates HTML. The WYSIWYG tab provides an HTML editor that allows you to drag and drop elements from the source XML document onto the HTML canvas.

To display the XSLT editor, open an XSLT stylesheet, or select File > New > XSLT Stylesheet from the Stylus Studio menu bar. At the bottom of the XSLT editor window, click the Params/Other tab.
