The Copy as XML Text command copies XML data from Grid View as XML text. Highlight any XML data in Standard Grid View or in Table View (which is another view available in Grid View), and select the Copy As XML Text command. The data is copied to the clipboard as XML text (as in the listing below). You can then paste this text in another document.

The Copy as XML Text command automatically formats text using the currently active settings for saving a file. These settings can be modified in the Save File section of the File section of the Options dialog (Tools | Options).
The same effect as that of the Copy as XML Text command can be obtained by switching to Text View and copying an XML text fragment with Ctrl+C (Edit | Copy). From Grid View, you can also use the Copy as Structured Text command to copy XML data in its tabular Grid View representation.
