I've only tried it while editing schema (for any other xml does the same).

Type the following
<xs:sequence>
After the last > autocomplete triggers. So the output shows like:
<xs:sequence></xs:sequence>

Type enter between the tags. Then type again

<xs:sequence>

After the last >, there's no autocomplete, although it should.

Also, is it possible to have auto-identation i.e. after hitting enter in between the sequence tags, the cursor would be indented to the right?

Thank you.

Thanks for the note, we'll get these added to the TODO list.

Just tried it with the most recent release (277), using out of the box sample, and the autocomplete of the closing tag still does not work... Any plans to fix these kind of things?

I've also looked for features required to implement a decent xslt editor... many peopled asked/wondered about it. Are there any serious plans to improve the functionality of the Web add-on to deal with such scenarios? Thank you.

Well yes we have an enormous TODO list (the auto-complete is on it) and we certainly would like to implement everything requested instantly. However like any other software company, we have limited developer resources so we have to prioritize what we work on.

If ever you need a feature immediately and it's holding you back, you can always hire us via consulting to implement it faster for you:

You may be able to do an XSLT editor if you combine an "XSLT" XSD with another language's (like HTML's) XSD. We've made some improvements in the upcoming build for dealing with xs:any.

The trick would probably be that for your other language's XSD, you'd need to define all its elements as root level elements and make sure your XSLT's XSD has xs:any in it at appropriate spots where the other language can be used in (like templates).
