How to save changes to XML DOCU tabs?

Question asked by Michael_Lowry on Dec 4, 2018

Yesterday I posted a new document, Working with XML in the Automation Engine. There’s one thing I have not figured out though: how to save changes to a structured documentation tab of an AE object.

 

I assumed simply running :XML_CLOSE after making changes to the open XML DOM would do the trick, but apparently this is not the case. Upon closer inspection, I see that the documentation makes this limitation clear:

 

XML_SET_ATTRIBUTE

Please note that only the element stored in the memory will be changed. The Documentation tab is not affected by this.

 

XML_SET_NODE_TEXT

The element is only stored in the memory using the script function. The Documentation tab is not affected by this.

 

So what’s the trick? How does one save changes to an XML DOCU tab?
