The XML | Convert to command converts a selected item in Grid View to a different item type. This operation is available only in Grid View on individual items that do not contain any child node. Placing the cursor over the Convert to command displays a submenu (see screenshot) which contains the items to which the selected item can be converted.
Please note: If the operation you select would result in a loss of data (for example, converting an attribute to a comment would result in a loss of the attribute name), a warning dialog box will appear.
