This is a Microsoft Windows .Net class application for creating,
editing and viewing OrganSpec XML files.
Note: this is beta software. It has been tested, but not thoroughly.
No guarantees are made about its functionality or suitability for any task.

The Microsoft .Net Framework (freely available from Microsoft).
The executable version consists of a single executable file.
Unzip it and copy it anywhere you like.
executable: OrganSpecEditExe.zip - 111k
source code: OrganSpecEditSrc.zip - 369k
Formal documentation is still under development.
The application should be pretty much self-documenting for anyone familiar
with Windows applications and the OrganSpec XML standard,
but the following features may not be immediately obvious:
- Most text fields support the entry of accented characters.
To enter an accented character, first enter the unaccented character,
and either highlight the character or place the text cursor immediately
following it. Then hold down the Alt key and press one of the following:
` (backquote) for accent grave
' (single quote) for accent acute
; or : or " (colon, semicolon or double-quote) for umlaut
~ (tilde) for tilde
6 or ^ (carat) for circumflex
c for cedilla
s or b to convert an 's' or 'B' to a German double-S
- You can use drag-and-drop to move elements.
If you drag one element on top of another, the source element becomes a child
of the target element.
If you drag one element between two elements, the source element is inserted
as a sibling of the target elements.
- Backup files (.bak) are created when you modify existing files.
You can turn this feature off in the Program Options dialog.
- Element ID's are automatically assigned as needed.
- Sometimes clicking on an element in the tree view doesn't really make it active
(though it appears to be) and you have to click on it again.
