Tips and tricks for editing EAD in oXygen

Archival Description 2015-12-22

Since I had to write up most of these for a new staffer, I thought I’d share a few things about oXygen that have made editing EAD easier. Details are in the PDF, but here’s the list:

1) Menus can be modified

2) Use the “Author view”

3) Panes can be selected and their locations modified

4) Breadcrumb trail can also be used to select

5) Find‐and‐replace in “Text view” can use regular expressions

6) Paste text as XML in Author view

7) Assign keyboard shortcuts
