Edit XML view
Being able to edit the XML view and apply the edit would be great.
I'm not sure if that might even already be possible now and I just don't know how. But tbh it also took me a while to see that it works the other way around: refreshing the XML view to represent what has been edited in the GUI
Thanks for the suggestion! I have specifically avoided implementing this since the main reason for using the Ribbon Workbench is to avoid xml errors that can be difficult to spot. The main reason I find for needing to edit the xml is when I want to copy/paste items. I’ve added this feature in the latest beta. You can even copy/paste between different entities and environments. I hope you will find this a useful feature.

I can't see how to do this. I want to copy a split button from one organization to another without importing the entire entity. The "clipboard" in the Ribbon Editor isn't shared. Thanks!

Hello Scot because I can not edit the XML I can never repair my ribbon as it contains 2 times a
CommandDefinition with the same name and do not know how to get rid of it now.
When I deleted the command (because they were double) in the XML it stayed. How can I solve this.
I want to modify xml directly is because I want to hide a button on the contact form but the button is not showing in ribbon workbench. I'm able to find the button id in the browser thus I believe I should try editing the XML to add the rule, however not possible to do this via ribbon workbench. anyway, I'll find another way to modify the XML. I believe there will be other ways. definitely I'll need to modify the XML as I know what I am doing.
[just an update] I managed to modify the XML by export the solution, unzip, modify the RibbonDiffXml section in file customizations.xml, zip again and import. it just worked - managed to the button.
is this on 2016? I am still unable to edit XML
