Open XML Package Editor Power Tool for Visual Studio

This Power Tool is a Visual Studio add-in that provides an easy way to parse and edit Open Packaging Conventions files, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Visio documents. This Power Tool enables you to do the following tasks:

  • Open any Open XML Package file or XPS Package file directly in Visual Studio 2010SP1/2012/2013/2015
  • Browse the contents of Package files in a tree view
  • Open any XML part directly in Visual Studio's rich XML editor
  • Add or remove parts and relationships directly in the user interface
  • Import and export part contents to and from files
  • Detect when a Package file that is opened in Visual Studio is modified externally. The Power Tool prompts the user to reload the file without having to close any open XML part editors
  • Create new Office Packages from a set of templates using Visual Studio's File > New dialog

The project is designed to be edited in VS2010SP1, but can be one-way converted to VS2012, VS2013 or 2015.

To compile this Visual Studio add-on you need the SDK for Visual Studio 2010 SP1. If you are getting mysterious errors about loading the csproj, you most likely haven't installed the SDK.

The compiled version of this Power Tool is available for download on the Visual Studio Gallery - please note that currently downloadable VSIX version does not support VS2015; update is in progress.

This project has adopted the Microsoft Open Source Code of Conduct. For more information, see the Code of Conduct FAQ or contact with any additional questions or comments.
