#229 Switching between 'viewer' and 'normalise' mode


Currently, if you start the xena.jar file normally, you get the option of normalising files.

To get the xena viewer, you must enter some sort of command line switch. What this command line switch actually is escapes me. I have added a feature request to add the command line switch information into the help file

I assume that people who download xena who actually normalise some files scratch their heads and say "OK, that is all well and good, but it sure would be nice to be able to see the document in all its openly specified documentary format". It would be good to have an obvious interface element to change to viewer mode (and back again)

Anyway, why is there not a big button which says "Switch to viewer mode" with a corresponding button which says "Switch to normalise mode"? Or even a "file open" option which says "open a normalised document and view it"?

Or am I missing something?

    I've added a File->Open menu item which allows the user to open a xena file.

    Can view files through File/Open or by double-clicking on just-normalised files displayed.
    File viewer also useable as seperate program.
