#294 XML: Wrap selection in a tag

Eric Le Lay
XML (5)

Hi there,

I primarily work with HTML and XML. I find jEdit to be an amazing tool, in particular how sidekick parses and displays the markup language.

One feature that I would dearly like, is a way for me to:

i) Wrap selected lines with tags
ii) Wrap a selection with tag

1) Wrap selection with an arbitrary tag

Often time, I'm required to take multiple lines and wrap them with an arbitrary tag. Right now, I make use of beanshell macros to do this, but they are hardcoded to specific tags (like <li> or <p>). I would like to do this without having to type into a dialog box.

See image 01_jetbrains_IDEA_wrap_in_tag.png

    Have you tried the XInsert plugin? Not sure about arbitrary tags, but it looks like it might not be too difficult to create your own custom tag libraries.

    Actually, now that you mention it, this might be a templates or supertemplates or xinsert feature rather than something that needs to be added to XML plugin, but Ia m not familiar enough with those other plugins to say for sure.

    In my earlier comment, when I said +1 to that, I thought this request was for reformatting words (as in word wrap) for the contents between a tag (instead of using the traditional paragraph separation criteria that jedit's built in reformat paragraph uses) but after looking at the images you attached, I realize your request is not about word wrap, but "tag wrapping".
