The Editor XML dialog includes a number of clickable icons to manipulate the «nodes» in the XML tree. A description of each icon follows. Some of the things you can do with these commands may not be so sensible.
Add XML element node. Add a node. For this to be useful, all the attributes appropriate to the type of node add must also be added.
Add XML text node. Can also be used to edit the text in a text object.
Duplicate XML node. Make a copy of the currently selected node including all its daughters. The new node will be placed at the same level and just after the original node. As each node must have a unique ID, Inkscape will assign a new ID. You can change the ID name if you wish.
Delete XML element node. Delete a node and all its daughters.
Unindent node. Move a node out one level. For a drawable object in a group, this is equivalent to removing that object from that group.
Indent node. Move a node in one level. The node will be moved under the closest node above at the same level.
Raise node. Move a node above the previous node with the same parent. Equivalent to changing the z-order when the two nodes are drawable objects.
Lower node. Move a node below the next node with the same parent. Equivalent to changing the z-order when the two nodes are drawable objects.
Delete the selected object attribute.
