    Idea for this issue very easy. We want use friendly GUI for editing XML structure from program. This task is big, but exist good part. We can use QXmlGraphicEditor project. Also can be useful this article Creating QTreeView from XML files.

    I still don't know what would be better left this part like independent program or add in main application.

    We can create application and call than need edit XML structure. But now i think it is bad idea because we also need know if need update scene after change.

    I know, but after change need say about change main program. This can be problem if use independent program for editing xml.

    Working on it : included in the program and changes will update the drawing

    Any advices or requested features ?

    Roman, I commit in the feature branch ?

    Feature branch i use if i have more that one commit for feature. Develop branch for sharing finished feature with other developers.

    About updating drawing. I don't know if you understand how updating work. But i think better way must be full updating. When we delete all objects from scene and run creation from the beginning. If you need help, please use mailing list for discussion.

    Do you plan use my example of xml editor?

    A user suggested Sublime Text 3

    I don't understand this suggestion. :/ Here we tried create internal XML editor. Not just seek XML editor for us.

    That's not very good task for beginners. Editing XML can be very tricky. Especially because we depend on correct data. What do you think about implementing a Shortcut Editor? See our discussion.
