3.2 - Toolbar

The toolbar at the top of the main Oso XML Merge window provides immediate access to most common operations that you will need.

As you can see in the above image, the buttons in the toolbar are loosely collected into groups containing similar functionality.

Icons on the left side of the Oso XML Merge window provide access to functionality that will help you compare or merge your XML files, while the two icons on the right provide quick access to help and additional information about Oso XML Merge.

Between the left and right aligned buttons you will find information detailing how many differences and conflicts can be found in the currently open XML files, as well as the name of the Format Specification currently being used.

The rest of this page will detail the functionality of each button in the toolbar. The sections below correspond to the groups displayed in the toolbar.
